::Research Area::

1. The characteristic and structure analysis of biosurfactant and bioemulsifier

Previously two thermophilic bacteria with ability to generate bioemulsifier and Lipopeptide as biosurfactant have been isolated and preserved. These two bioemulsifier are now been investigated on their molecular structure, characteristics and also their metabolic mechanisms and pathway.

2. Identification and Molecular modification of key functional genes responsible for hydrocarbon degradation.

Long chain hydrocarbons degradation by microorganisms has been efficient to decrease Viscosity of heavy oil. To figure out their degrading mechanisms, gene knock out technique was applied to verify the functions of potential genes obtained from modified tail-PCR. Furthermore, the degrading genes were modified through Error-PCR and Homologous Recombination to improve their catalytic functions.

3. Molecular ecology research and detecting techniques on microorganisms communities in oil fields

Merely about 1% microorganisms could be cultivated under current research circumstances; therefore, advanced molecular biology techniques like DGGE, TRFLP and Hybridization in situ are required to monitor the whole microbe community dynamically underground.
