The whole genome sequence of the potent microbial strains will be determined, and the enzymes will be identified and cloned in a suitable shuttle expression vector. The recombinant bacteria overexpressing the desired enzyme will be used for biotransformation or biodegradation of plastic. The enzyme may further be engineered for enhanced activity The specific objectives will be a) Isolation and identification of plastic biodegrading bacteria and b) Identification of the genes responsible for biodegradation. Studying the kinetics of biodegradation of plastic.
