Data for: Characterisation of surfactant-expressing bacteria and their potential bioremediation properties from hydrocarbon-contaminated and uncontaminated soils



This dataset comprises data collected for a PhD study including a multi-site screening for isolates demonstrating properties that may aid in bioremediation, phenotypic and genotypic characterisation of selected isolates- and more detailed characterisation of hydrocarbon degradation properties.
