I am writing, or am supposed to be writing a research proposal for a Scientific and Technical Writing class I am in at Rutgers University. I have just switched into the major of biotechnology and as a result have to do something pertaining to my major. I have chosen to work with bioremediation, and will probably work with bioremediation of oil spills. The question I have from anyone out there is this:
Are there are any articles or journals you could suggest where I could find the most recent information about what has already been done in this subject area?
From what research I have done, I have determined that there have been no uses of genetically modified organisms outside of laboratory conditions...is this true? If this is the case would a proposal suggesting a battery of tests for a particular microorganism that has been gentetically modified be best. Thanks for any help you can give...
