Document Summary

Microbial diversity and function in contaminated- remediation. Science of microorganisms (very small; mostly unicellular organisms); small scale; wide variety. Discipline is just over a century old. Has given rise to molecular biology and biotechnology; lost of development. 2 divisions prokaryotic (without the true kernel) and eukaryotic (with a kernel (nucleus)) Eukaryote; animals and plants are macro-organism || algae/ fungi/ protozoa (micro- Archaea and bacteria (not related to another); both prokaryotic (no macro-organisms) organisms) Rice patty: types of organisms in the tundra is similar to what u would see here; microscopically similar; relatively high carbon; relatively high in temperate. Boreal forest: can smell the woods; dirt is different from what would be in ur garden; microbes in environment secrete. Microbes are forms of life too small to be seen with the naked eye (bacteria, fungi, algae, protists) Examines how microbes interact with humans, with food and how they can be used by humans (among other aspects)
