Download Applied Microbiology and Molecular Biology in Oilfield by Corinne Whitby, Torben Lund Skovhus PDF

By Corinne Whitby, Torben Lund Skovhus

Applied Microbiology and Molecular Biology in Oil box structures addresses the key difficulties microbes reason in oil fields, (e.g. biocorrosion and souring) and the way invaluable microbial actions can be exploited (e.g. MEOR and biofuels). The ebook describes theoretical and functional ways to precise Molecular Microbiological tools (MMM), and is written via best specialists within the box from either academia and undefined. The publication describes how MMM may be utilized to faciliate higher administration of oil reservoirs and downstream tactics. The publication is cutting edge in that it utilises genuine business case experiences which supplies important technical and medical info to researchers, engineers and microbiologists operating with oil, fuel and petroleum systems.

Example text

Therefore, RNA analysis is more difficult than DNA analysis. Benefits of the PCR-DGGE Technique The major advantage of PCR-DGGE is that the fingerprints (banding patterns) correspond to different environments, allow a direct and quick comparison of these 5 Which Microbial Communities are Present? e. the 16S rRNA gene fragments of similar species migrate the same distance in a gel before denaturation. This allows a high-throughput screening of many samples, since bands can also be excised and sequenced.

Ca C. L. V. M. 1 for an overview of metagenomic methods. For microbial community analysis, either the total environmental DNA or an enriched fraction of the DNA extracted from the environment can be utilised. PCR amplification is the technique most commonly used to selectively enrich a particular or set of genes present in the environment. e. limiting amounts of difficult to process samples. Even if it is possible to obtain large volumes of sample material, samples containing oil, fine clays or other contaminating material can make DNA extraction problematic.

Such specific primers allow the amplification of the 16S rRNA gene from a small selection of closely related microorganisms. In the case of group-, genus-, and species-specific primers and probes, it is important to note that although the organisms in a phylogenetic group contain relatively similar 16S rRNA molecules, they may be functionally highly diverse. For example, the phylogenetic group Deltaproteobacteria contain sulphate- and sulphur-reducing, nitrate-utilising, aerobic, and iron-reducing microorganisms.
