Microbes degrade oil from Deepwater Horizon spill
Marine microorganisms responded to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill by boosting the abundance of species capable of breaking down crude oil, according to new research. This method of `bioremediation´ could help manage crises in deep sea environments, where other clean-up methods are ineffective.
