Dr. Xie’s group is devoted to applying molecular biology tools to identify and quantify the microorganisms responsible for degradation of xenobiotic pollutants,  and to developing high-efficiency bioremediation approaches for contaminated soil or aquifer. His research team has also paid attention to the dynamics and functions of microbial communities in drinking water biofilter.
