Executive Summary

Our project is RhizoMet. We will utilize engineered bacteria in plants to selectively accumulate arsenic by expressing novel proteins with a high binding affinity to the heavy metal, which will be a more sustainable method of removing arsenic from the environment. Our plan is to install these plants in the local areas that are affected by arsenic upon completion.
