Scientists 'beef up' plant-dwelling bacteria to boost phytoremediation
Scientists transfer genes from pollutant-degrading bacteria into bacteria residing in plants to improve the plants' use in phytoremediation. They describe their proof-of-principle experiment, in which test plants inoculated with the "beefed-up" bacteria increased the degradation of toluene, in the May 2004 issue of Nature Biotechnology.
