Microbial Degradation of Plastics: Searching the Needle in the Haystack

Presenting person: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Streit Mikrobiologie und Biotechnologie, UProf. Dr. Wolfgang Streit, Mikrobiologie und Biotechnologie, Universität Hamburg (Homepage)
We. 2019-11-27 (16:15), H 11 / NW I

Bacteria as plastic waste disposal? Will microorganisms be able to eat microplastics in the future and thus remove them from the environment? What is behind the microorganisms, what effect they have and what opportunities there are for the reduction of nano- and microplastics will be explained here. Further I will address our latest attempts to identify plastic-degrading enzymes and bacteria by mining global metagenomes.

The talk is part of the SFB Microplastics seminar series.
