(including intrinsic markers)
2) Reporter genes for monitoring bacterial gene expression in the

3) Methods for detection and monitoring of specific microorganisms in nature
4) Biosafety of genetically modified microorganisms in nature
5) Microbial activity in the environment
6) Microbial cell communication and signalling in the environment
