Containment of a genetically engineered microorganism during a field bioremediation application



Containment of a genetically engineered microorganism during a field bioremediation application



Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology 51(3): 397-400



The authors investigated the magnitude of the escape of a genetically engineered microorganism culture during the loading process and the resulting pattern of dispersal. During soil loading, the genetically engineered bacterial strain Pseudomonas fluorescens HK44 was sprayed onto the surface of a soil. The release of the bacteria outside the lysimeters was observed using selective agar plates and one-stage Anderson air samplers. The findings indicate that only sporadic escape occurred during the loading process and that the highest incidence of bacterial escape occurred when humidity and wind speed were low.
