Title

Molecular Methods in Biological Systems

Abstract

This review summarizes literature demonstrating the application of molecular biology tools in biological systems with specific applications in biological waste treatment, public health, and bioremediation. In addition, this review highlights new methods that were developed in 2001. As molecular tools move from development to applications, environmental engineers and scientists need to use care in interpreting the results of experimental procedures. Molecular biology tools offer powerful approaches for understanding the microbial communities in biological systems, but researchers and practitioners share the responsibility of translating this new knowledge into useful practical outcomes.
