Ecologie microbienne appliquée


Course description: Students will gain knowledge on microbial ecology and the microbial potential and risks in the industrial and environmental fields. Two other objectives are: understand the importance of microorganisms in the ecosystems functioning (and therefore in the mineralization of organic matter and xenobiotics), and acquire knowledge on bioremediation processes. Topics addressed are:

- using microorganisms in degradation/transformation of xenobiotics and pollutants (eg hydrocarbons, pesticides);

- theoretical (metabolism) and applied (processes) aspects of pollutant degradation, biological remediation, wastewater treatment processes and contaminated soils treatment;

- gut microbiome, structure and main functions in the functioning of the digestive tract. Application: probiotics.

Field trip to visit wastewater treatment plants is planned.


Learning outcomes: Analyze scientific papers, describe microbial capabilities and risks in industrial and environmental domains, associate the microbial metabolisms to the ecosystem functioning, manage bioremediation processes.
