Applied and Environmental Microbiology Laboratory (AEML)
Applied & Environmental Microbiology Laboratory (AEML) studies on bacterial metabolisms of organic pollutants and heavy metals with purpose of cleaning environments and producing valuable products.
Through years, bacteria the tiny living organisms have shaped our planet by communicating with the surrounding environmental conditions. This communication allowed bacteria to earn excellent biological tools able to modify or metabolize the chemicals. Therefore, we are interested in mimicking the tools of bacteria, which we humankind do not have, for treatment of environmental contaminants and production of noble biomaterials.
