The sponge can filtrate up to 20m3 of water/day/kg making it one of the most powerful filtrating system alive. Pseudovibrio denitrificans has been shown to be part of the sponge microbiome. Our project is based on the engineering of this bacterium in the microbiome in order to develop a filtrating system allowing to sense and even degrade pollutants in water.
