Abstract
The paper summarizes progress in two of the biotechnology projects funded by WERL in recent years. The first deals with the cloning and DNA sequencing of the important genes responsible for methane production in methanogens. The second concerns the successful development of microbial binding proteins as cycling column adsorbers for scrubbing pollutants such as cadmium and phosphate from waste water. Implications of results of the research in the Water Engineering Research Laboratory's research objectives are discussed.
