Background Information
Section Affiliation Applied and Environmental Microbiology
Research Interests    Methylmercury (MeHg) is one of the most toxic compounds among the mercury species. Most of the MeHg in nature is produced by microbes possessing a certain pair of genes. My project goal is to answer what chemical parameters make these microbes produce Mehg and what environmental conditions increase MeHg production?
