In the past decade, advances in molecular biology have greatly expanded the `tools' available for monitoring the activities of microorganisms in the degradation of environmental pollutants. These molecular markers (reporter genes) produce signals which are easily detectable by change in colour or giving off light at a certain wave length. Bioluminescent and fluorescent markers are a class of molecular markers that can be used to monitor cell viability and concentration without the enrichment and disruption of the cell growth in complex environment such as the soil. Molecular markers have wide applications in the field of environmental biotechnology.
