Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Germanium is a semi-precious, widely-dispersed, and biologically non-essential metal with considerable potential for application in the fields of electronics, computer engineering and medicine. Research on the physiology and genetics of germanium toxicity and accumulation in microorganisms has received scant attention. An understanding of these aspects is important from both fundamental and applied points of view. This review will examine the diverse range of interactions between germanium and microbial species.
