Synthetic microbiology for/in the environment

We are interested in biosensing, remediation and (wherever possible) valorization of chemical waste that is otherwise dumped into the environment by industrial activities. The workhorse to this end is the soil bacterium Pseudomonas putida, which combines the ease of genetic programming that is typical of Escherichia coli with the robustness and metabolic capabilities required for applications in harsh biotechnological settings.
