Project title: The influence of electron transport and charge density on precipitation, growth and transformation of iron oxides in microbial systems
Granted by: DFF Sapere Aude
My work on this project show that the influence of electron transport on iron oxides trans- and formation in reducing systems can be modified by using engineered bacteria and different types of natural bacteria. One interesting aspect was that, beside the electron transfer rate, also the polysaccharides from biofilms had an effect on the formed mineral products.
