    Microorganisms play important roles in the environmental fate of toxic metals and radionuclides with a multiplicity of mechanisms effecting transformations between soluble and insoluble forms. These mechanisms are integral components of natural biogeochemical cycles and are of potential for both in situ and ex situ bioremedial treatment processes for solid and liquid wastes.
