A study by Prof. Ali Elkarmi and Prof. Khaled Abu-Elteen is summarized by the Claremont Climate Report


The study entitled "Biodegradation of 2,4-dichlorophenol originating from pharmaceutical industries" published in the African Journal of Biotechnology was summarized by the famous Claremont Climate Report published by the Roberts Environmental Center at Claremont McKenna College. The study is about extracting and identifying Pseudomonas alcaligenes from the wastewater of pharmaceutical industries and examining its efficiency in biodegrading 2,4-dichlorophenol. The bacterial species was genetically modified using ultraviolet radiation and then tested again for its new biodegradation efficiency. The optimal condition for biodegradation using this bacterial species was also studied.
