Transferring Plasmid from Aerobic to Anaerobic Bacteria
Posted 18 May 2010 - 11:19 AM
When my mom mentioned this, AP Biology oddly came back to my brain. I wondered if it was possible or practical to target the sequence that codes for oil-eating behavior and match it with an anaerobic bacteria where the plasmid could be introduced into its DNA. This way, the oxygen levels wouldn't be affected as much!
I honestly have no idea if this is possible, but would love some feedback!

The huge amounts of oil cant be "eaten" away that fast.
If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
