NSERC Strategic Grant for RoundUp Degradation

An NSERC Strategic Grant worth $851,400 over 3 years was awarded to the Zechel lab and a consortium of researchers to develop methods to remediate soils contaminated with RoundUp (glyphosate), the most widely used herbicide on Earth. Led by Trevor Charles (U. Waterloo), this proposal will combine the expertise of the Zechel lab with Geoff Horsman (Wilfrid Laurier), Ze-Chun Yuan (U. Western Ontario) and Kerri Wang (A&L Canada Laboratories) to select and engineer bacteria to degrade RoundUp.
