Quorum Sensing and Bioremediation
( 583 reads)
Biodegradation of organic matter present in the waste water and effluents emanating from domestic and industrial sources is limited by the availability of material to microbes. Biosurfactants produced by Pseudomonas, Burkholderia and Bacillus through the phenomenon of quorum sensing promotes rapid biodegradation and bioremediation.
Bioenergy and Bioproducts through Bacterial Quorum Sensing
( 812 reads)
A unique bacterial communication system called as Quorum Sensing (QS) operates at high cell densities. QS allows them to express certain phenotypes, such as biofilm formation, which can be exploited for producing value added products - bioenergy and bioproducts from biowastes.
