What is it about?

1. Effects of secondary carbon supplement on biofilm-mediated biodegradation of naphthalene. 2. Morphological changes of the bacterial cell during biodegradation of naphthalene.

Why is it important?

The Major Two findings are as follows: 1. 0.5wt% sucrose as a best secondary carbon supplement. 2. Cell size and shape shift during biodegradation of naphthalene in CSM. These two new findings can combine further elucidate bacterial adaptation strategies in nutrient-limiting condition.

Perspectives

The bacterial adaptation strategy in nutrient-limiting condition is important to understand the overall biodegradation process. Pseudomonas putida KD9 changes its size and shape from rod to small sphere. This is an important clue for bioremediation technology.
