Topic: Agriculture & Biotechnology


Hydrocarbon degradation can occur with diverse varieties of microbes in nature. Different chemical compounds have shown their susceptibility to the microbial degradation. . Fungal species generally forms carcinogenic trans – diols while bacterial species generally forms cis – diols. Contaminated soil contained significantly higher amount (50 – 75 %) of gram negative bacteria having genotypes enclosing genes compared to pristine soil (0 – 12.5 %).  Application  of  bioinformatics  tools  like  BLAST  has  identified  microorganism1  as Bacillus cereus, microorganism2 as Pseudoxanthomonas mexicana, microorganism3 as Halomonas daqingensis and microorganism4 as Parapusillimonas granuli. These microbes were given names accordingly from PS11 to PS14 respectively. They were assigned unique identification numbers starting from KM192258 to KM192261

    extream use of petrohydrocabons due to urbanisation and industrialisation......pollution related to it will increase.....infect it already incresed.....hence commercialisation of such organisms to remove pollutants based on these another study we have also found out pesticides degrading oraganisms which can be used to remove pesticides from soil.......contaminated since long time......nearly 100 or more year.

    many countries have already ban all pesticides .......which can be allowed again with these oraganisms.......

    Hydrocarbon degradation using natural microbes is believed to be slow process even though it is environmentally friendly. These days researchers are looking in the direction of Nanotechnology which also has some draw backs. My question is can microbial process be used in conjunction with Nano-remediation to achieve better result?

    thank for question and suggestions...........
    .....answer is yes but need to study and go for practical approach .........
    nano technology has also limitation......reaching at each and every spreading capacity.......all environmental spreading.......and most important is degradation of nano materials later on may shows pollution due to nano particles....
    i may not have same efficiency as nano technologist-bioremidiation experts.
    thanks again and will have interactions for research projects and future...
    regards from Dr Ajit

    Good morning..Your paper is a good initiative..I would like to know the method adopted for sequencing..Also when using BLAST, was filter applied to restrict organism-specific search?

    thanks S SIVASHANKARI, for your appreciation..........the gujarat bitechnology mission is authorised for sequncing ......the have done oeverall process and helped us for all various achievments......send me your e-mail i will direct it to authorised person who is expert in this field....MY STUDENT PREETI WILL COMMUNICATE FOR THE SAME.

    Dear Dr. Ajit Pandya & Preeti Sing
    Your article is good. Can these organisms degrade polythene bags?

    I went through your article and I dare-say an honest effort was made at identifying the organisms you made mention off. However, when I probed further your article, I noticed that the "Discussion and Conclusion" sections were not there. This I had looked forward to, to help me understand your thoughts as to the relevance of your findings. For instance, if these micro-organisms could thrive in these environments, what does it mean for bio-remediation? Are there better alternatives presently to bioremediation than these organisms could offer? What were your limitations in carrying out this research and in what areas do you think this research study could be furthered?
