Analysis of the Microbial Community in the Leachate Collected from an Experimental Bioleaching Column by Cloning and RFLP

Abstract:

Article Preview

A culture independent molecular methodology was used to investigate the bacterial and archaeal microbial dynamics of leachate collected from a 60°C chalcopyrite bioleaching column inoculated with a known microbial consortium. A 16S rRNA gene clone library was constructed for both the bacterial and archaeal populations in the leachate from the column. PCR-RFLP analysis of these clone libraries indicate species dominance and generally low species diversity.
