Year:   2019  2018  2017  2016  2015  2014  2013  2012  2011  2010  2009  2008  2008  2007  2006 

The Environmental Molecular Analysis Core has worked with Molecular Insight into Dioxin Degradation by Microbes and Microbial Communities and Geochemical Controls on the Sorption, Bioavailability, Formation, and Long-term Environmental Fate of Polychlorinated Dibenzo-p-Dioxins (PCDDs) Projects to analyze changes in RW-1, a pure-culture dioxin degrader, when challenged by either free TCDD or biochar-bound to TCDD. The Core found that the biochar-bound TCDD is less toxic to RW-1. They are analyzing RW-1 transcriptomes collected under these conditions. The Core continues to support the Molecular Insight into Dioxin Degradation by Microbes and Microbial Communities Project in the development of a qPCR array targeting dechlorinases, a very diverse category of genes involved in removal of chlorines from TCDD and other chlorinated pollutants. This provides the researchers with a genetic test to track these important genes in the environment.
