  Characterization of chromate-resistant and -reducing bacteria by traditional means and by a high-throughput phenomic technique for bioremediation purposes.
Viti C, Decorosi F, Tatti E, Giovannetti L. Dipartimento di Biotecnologie Agrarie, Sezione di Microbiologia, Università degli Studi di Firenze, Piazzale delle Cascine 24, I-50144, Firenze, Italy. carlo.viti@unifi.it. This paper illustrates the use of PM technology in the field of bioremediation. Carlo Viti and colleagues used PM technology to characterize the properties of Cr(VI)-resistant isolates of Pseudomonas.

  Genomic and phenotypic diversity of coastal Vibrio cholerae strains is linked to environmental factors.
Keymer DP, Miller MC, Schoolnik GK, Boehm AB. Department of Civil Engineering, Stanford University School of Medicine, CA 94305, USA. dkeymer@stanford.edu. What does it take for Vibrio to thrive in California coastal waters? The authors test coastal Vibrio strains from their substantial collection using genomics and PM technology to identify genes and metabolic pathways that allow strains to adapt to their environmental niche.

Phenotype MicroArray Technology
Biolog's Phentoype MicroArray technology enables researchers to evaluate nearly 2000 phenotypes of a microbial cell in a single experiment. This integrated system of cellular assays, instrumentation and bioinformatics software provides cellular knowledge that complements molecular information, helping you interpret and find the relevant aspects in massive amounts of gene expression or proteomics data. Through comprehensive and precise quantitation of phenotypes, researchers are able to obtain an unbiased perspective of the effect on cells of genetic differences, environmental change, exposure to chemicals or drugs, and more.
