Isolation of arsenite-oxidizing bacteria from arsenic-enriched sediments from Camarones river, Northern Chile.


In Northern Chile, high arsenic concentrations are found in natural water, both natural and anthropogenic sources, a significant health risk. Nine bacterial strains were isolated from Camarones river sediments, located in Northern Chile, a river showing arsenic concentrations up to 1,100 microg/L. These strains were identified as Pseudomonas and they can… (More)
