MTBE and TBA Cleanup-New Research Perspectives
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by U.S. EPA

The UC Davis Superfund Research Program team has isolated a robust, naturally occurring microorganism, Methylibium petroleiphilum PM1, determined its genome sequence and developed a rapid, real-time PCR-based bioassay that can be used to supplement classical monitoring technologies at sites contaminated with methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) and tertiary butyl alcohol (TBA). Quantitative spatial and temporal enumeration of strain PM1 correlates with MTBE and TBA contamination and provides evidence for bioremediation potential.
