Solar panels host microbes that may be used for biotech applications

Publicado em 10 novembro 2021
Scientists at Brazil's research agency, Fasesp, have conducted a study to analyze the presence of micro-organisms on the surface of photovoltaic panels installed in tropical regions. The researchers profiled all the microbes they found on PV systems located in Sorocaba and Itatiba, in São Paulo state, through 16S rRNA gene sequencing, which is commonly used to identify, classify, and measure the volume of microbes within complex biological mixtures such as environmental samples and [...]
