Hello there!

Thank you Mr John and Bob for the previous reply.

Regarding the question on how to construct microbial consortia,  im trying to
construct microbial consortia for bioremediation of hydrocarbon
contaminated soil. All the papers that i came across grew the inoculum
separately and then combined them. 

Can we combine them directly and then test for the abiltiy of bacteria to degrade oil ? Eg lets
say flask 1 contains 1ml oil+100ml media+2ml inoculum of one type and
flask 2 contains 1ml oil+100ml media+ 1ml each of 2 different inoculum
for the testing?

Thank you!
