Crude oil constitutes of variety of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) that consist of fused aromatic rings, which are known pollutants and potential health hazards. PAHs are also found in processed fossil fuels, tar and various edible oil. The study highlights the isolation, identification and the screening of efficient PAHs degradation under optimal conditions of cultivation. Further the efforts have been made to study the involvement of genetic and biochemical machinery in biodegradation of PAHs and to develop a ...
