Objective
This proposal titled, "Dispersed uranium tailings and their influence on the bacterial community of contiguous Navajo nation agricultural soils" is a new application submitted as a New Discovery-Enhanced, Single-function research project. This proposal to (NIFA), TGRGP is a collaboration between NTU (lead) and the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore (UMES). The overall goal is to determine the diversity of microbial communities and their effect on uranium contaminated Navajo farms. It will also determine bacterial populations habiting these agricultural soils bordering uranium tailings, and relate them to identified metal-reducing species.
