Publication for Biosurfactants and Biodegradation Database

BioSurfDB citation


Biogeographical distribution analysis of hydrocarbon degrading and biosurfactant producing genes suggests that near equatorial biomes have higher abundance of genes with potential for bioremediation

[…] biotics in the nonribosomal peptide synthesis pathway, that make research on degradation, or surfactants individually much more difficult. To overcome this limitation, domain-specific databases, like BioSurfDB [], reorganize the functional ontologies, thus allowing the focus, on biosurfactants and biodegradation. This domain-specific database also combines a set of tailored tools to enable efficie […]
