Contents Notes
"This report relates genetic engineering to biological waste treatment, so that opportunities for its improvement can be identified and evaluated. It compares the present (mid-1983) state of development of gene manipulation and natural limits to biodegradation. It identifies a number of research topics that are likely to contribute to new pollution treatment techniques. These topics include the basic mechanisms underlying microbial co-metabolism and oligotrophy; molecular genetics in filamentous fungi, in strict anaerobes and in archaebacteria; directed evolution of enzymes and metabolic pathways; and studies to advance understanding of dehalogenations by microbes."
