Molecular Approaches and MetaGenomic Investigations for optimizing Clean-up of PAH contaminated sites

Project Details


MAGICPAH aims to explore, understand and exploit the catalytic activities of microbial
communities involved in the degradation of persistent PAHs. It will integrate (meta-) genomic
studies with in-situ activity assessment based on stable isotope probing particularly in
complex matrices of different terrestrial and marine environments. PAH degradation under
various conditions of bioavailability will be assessed as to improve rational exploitation of the
catalytic properties of bacteria for the treatment and prevention of PAH pollution.
