The NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) is hosting a Risk e-Learning webinar series focused on new approaches to elucidate mechanisms responsible for bioremediation. The series will feature innovative molecular, biochemical, cellular, and engineering tools to advance our understanding of the structural and functional properties of microorganisms or plants that may be involved in the bioremediation of hazardous substances.
Bioremediation - Expanding the Toolbox: Session I - The Microbiome
Monday, September 30, 1:00 – 3:00 pm EDT
The first session will serve as an introduction to the series and will discuss opportunities to build linkages with other microbiome fields of study, such as the human microbiome.
