Microbes are essential to the survival of all plant and animal life as well as to the sustainability of every ecosystem on the planet. As such microbes are ubiquitous on Earth and have evolved to consume a wide variety of food sources. Bioremediation is a natural process which takes advantage of the ability of microbes to consume contaminants as their primary food source. In this Café, Claudia Gunsch will discuss how environmental microbiomes can be engineered to clean up the environment.
