In this project I tested whether P. Mircospora fungi can biodegrade ocean oil spills and/or microplastic pollution. My chosen topic is a continuation of last year's, and my reason for choosing it hasn't changed. The reason is that we are polluting our oceans with microplastics and oil spills, which are harming marine life, yet, we aren't researching enough natural solutions to terminate this problem.
