Fry and M. Day, eds. Genetics 70 : Peer review. Gupta in collaboration with E. New Swatantra Times Our targets are microbial strains able to degrade various recalcitrant pollutants, especially aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons and their halogenated compounds.
Table of contents
The microbial genes and enzymes directly and indirectly involved in this degradation have been analyzed in detail. We have demonstrated that 1 the degradation genes and their clusters are often loaded on various mobile genetic elements MGEs such as transposons, plasmids, and integrative and conjugative elements and 2 their intra- and intercellular movement greatly contributes to i wide dissemination of nearly identical genes and their clusters in various phylogenetically distant microbial strains, and ii rapid evolution of the pollutant-degrading microbes.
Comparative genomic analysis of our target microbes has also definitely supported the important roles of the MGEs in the establishment of the present structures of microbial genomes.
For completion of whole genome sequencing and genome comparison, we have developed our own original software programs, which are available freely to academic scientists. We have also employed function- and sequence-driven metagenomic approaches to i directly isolate and characterize genes for the degradation of pollutants, and ii investigate the time-course response of the microbial community to pollutants in soil microcosms.
Tsuda, M. Fukuda, and Y. Kamagata eds. Microbial Genetics and Genomics The aim of this laboratory is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of environmental adaptation and the evolution of microbial strains and their communities from standpoints of genetics, molecular biology, genomics, and molecular ecology.
The following are major topics of our research projects: Analysis of microbial biodegradation of various recalcitrant pollutants.
