Combined Application of PCR-Based Functional Assays for the Detection of Aromatic-Compound-Degrading Anaerobes ▿

By Kevin Kuntze, Carsten Vogt, Hans-Hermann Richnow and Matthias Boll


To explore the reliability of assays that detect aromatic-compound-degrading anaerobes, a combination of three functional-gene-targeting assays was applied to microcosms from benzene-contaminated aquifers. Results of the assays were consistent and suggest that species related to the genera Azoarcus and Geobacter dominated benzene degradation at the individual sites
