Abstract
    Metagenomic research of microplastics and the rhizosphere of lettuce gives information about the microbial composition and functions of the species present in their environment. Knowledge about the microbial load on microplastics and the functions these bacteria perform could help in the detection of marine plastic degrading bacteria.Understanding the influence of biochar on the rhizosphere microbiome and the effect on soil-borne pathogens, could lead to the development of novel ways to restore soil quality and enhance plant health.
