PhD Project title: Studies on Some Aspects of Microbial Detoxification of Chromium

PhD Project Description:-  Survey of Chromium contaminated enviroments of West Bengal for Physico-Chemical and Microbiological Analysis of Sediment samples for isolation of Chromium resistant bacteria. Tolerance for Chromium resistance was assessed both by qualitative and quantitative measures. Highly potent chromium tolerant straints were characterized morphologically, biochemically and physiologically. The mechanism for Chromium Tolerance was also determined and conditions for maximum biosorption optimized. The strains were eventually identified also.
