For an exhibition for science museums on microbes I'd like to:

	show some bacteria degrading petroleum either in tubes or 
petri dishes. Does any one know strains, time frame to show an effect 
and other conditions? Any other bacterial remediation that can be 
turned into an exhibit?

	 show the evolution of oxygen from cyanobacteria in an 
analogous manner that aquatic plants like Elodea are used. Has 
anybody tried this or have any thoughts of how to do it?
