Bioprospecting for Cellulose-Degrading Microbes

This high school-college level activity screens for cellulase-producing microbes from environmental samples of the students' choice. Students prepare samples, isolate them on selective media, and screen for cellulase activity. Two methods are provided, one focusing on isolation of pure microbial strains, the other focusing on finding symbiotic communities of microbes.
