Kick-off meeting with Bioe


Our main collaborator is a bacteria named Geobacter.

"Geobacter species are anaerobic respiration bacterial species which have capabilities that make them useful in bioremediation. Geobacter was found to be the first organism with the ability to oxidize organic compounds and metals, including iron, radioactive metals, and petroleum compounds into environmentally benign carbon dioxide while using iron oxide or other available metals as electron acceptors. Geobacter species are also found to be able to respire upon a graphite electrode.They have been found in anaerobic conditions in soils and aquatic sediment."
