A new assay of bacterial selection with Pb reveals an unexpected effect of Pb on bacterial behavior: implications for remediation
Soil pollution by lead (Pb) is a major health concern due to Pb toxicity. Phytoextraction could remove Pb, but this technique is limited by the low Pb mobility in soils. Pb mobility can be increasedExpand
