Project description

Precious research with the unique capacity for denitrification as well as dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium (DRNA). This project will use these bacteria to identify key physiocochemical parameters fot nitrate partitioning to both process, elucidate the nitrous oxide production pathways to both processes and draw up and test valid hypotheses on the ecology of both processes.
