    Bioremediation is the use of organisms like bacteria, archea or fungi to metabolize pollutants. Instead of simply collecting the pollutant, bioremediation relies on living organisms to consume and break down the compound, turning it into a natural, harmless product. This technique is often used to help clean up major oil spills. Watch the following video and article link to learn more:

    Address the following questions in essay format:

    Research a microbe that can be used in bioremediation and provide the following information:

    1) Provide the scientific name and identification of the bacteria that is used in bioremediation. How is it classified? Give a brief description of your bacteria. What is it’s normal environment?

    2) Which biogeochemical cycle does the bacterium participate in (Carbon, nitrogen, or phosphorus cycling)? How is this important to its role in bioremediation?

    3) How are bacteria as a whole being genetically modified to improve bioremediation?

    3) What are some limitations to using bacteria for bioremediation?

    SLP Assignment Expectations

    Page Length: 2 to 3 pages


    TUI encourages all students to comply with APA style and format guidelines for proper citation of references.  Use the formatting in your Background page as a model for citing sources from the SLP assignment.

    Scholarly Content                  

    Your case assignments are considered scholarly works. Your final work should include peer reviewed (scholarly) sources.

    Please keep in mind that you should not use sources such as “Answers.com” or “Wikipedia” or “Wikianswers.”  None of these are scholarly sources and they can be “modified” by any registered user which makes them unreliable. Upload your final word document to the SLP dropbox.
