Topical Day | Aquatic microbiota in or near nuclear facilities: insights, discoveries and solutions

September 12, 2019   Brussels (BELGIUM)

During the Topical Day, the following topics will be treated:

  • Life and dead bacteria (and algae) as biosorbents of heavy metals and radionuclides;
  • Biofouling of SNF reservoirs and other water systems of nuclear installations;
  • Microbial diversity studies of radiation-intensive environments;
  • Metagenomic and bioinformatic approaches in microbial ecology;
  • Microbial resistance to ionizing radiation;
  • Microbial survival in pristine waters;
  • Novel microbes isolated from nuclear installations: applications and fundamental research.
