REE Adsorption Performance with Immobilized Caulobacter Biofilms

This submission includes data collected from experiments on the performance of rare earth adsorption by immobilized bacteria that accompany the FY18 Q2 and Q3 quarter reports. Relevant information from these reports is included in a resource below. The spreadsheet below includes data from the following three experiments:
REE Bioadsorption from buffer solution by Caulobacter biofilms.
REE Bioadsorption from mock geothermal fluids by Caulobacter biofilms.
REE biosorption capacity and its temperature dependence with Mutag Biochips.
