Header and Body 1


The main objective of this technology is to recognize and break down organophosphate (OP) pesticides like parathion and paraoxon using engineered microbial co-cultures of E. coli and S. oneidensis. This technology is primarily relevant to the agricultural industry, as it provides a safeguard against the serious health effects caused by exposure to pesticides used in the industry. In addition to OPs, this technology is expected to be expandable to other harmful environmental contaminants.
