A07 - Subsurface Planctomycetes as Sources for Novel Biotechnological Applications

The CRC AquaDiva revealed that bacteria from the phylum Planctomycetes play key roles in subsurface habitats. In the groundwater, they convert ammonium and nitrite in the anammox reaction into dinitrogen gas and contribute significantly to both, carbon fixation and nitrogen release. Using enrichment and cultivation techniques, we will obtain these Planctomycetes as cultures and analyze their potential for biotechnological applications from wastewater treatment to bioactive small molecule production.
