Operon mer: bacterial resistance to mercury and potential for bioremediation of contaminated environments.
Mercury is present in the environment as a result of natural processes and from anthropogenic sources. The amount of mercury mobilized and released into the biosphere has increased since theExpand

Molecular identification and dynamics of microbial communities in reactor treating organic household waste
The prokaryotic diversity associated with organic household waste (OHW), leachate (start-up inoculum), and mesophilic anaerobic digestion processes in the degradation of OHW for 44 and 90 days wasExpand

Prokaryotic diversity and dynamics in a full-scale municipal solid waste anaerobic reactor from start-up to steady-state conditions.
The prokaryotic diversity of an anaerobic reactor for the treatment of municipal solid waste was investigated over the course of 2 years with the use of 16S rDNA-targeted molecular approaches. TheExpand

Multiple antimicrobial resistance in Enterobacteriaceae isolates from pristine freshwater.
A freshwater enterobacterial population (N = 111) was studied for antimicrobial and mercury resistance patterns, and for its possible association with biotic and abiotic factors in that environment.Expand

Proteolytic bacterial dominance in a full-scale municipal solid waste anaerobic reactor assessed by 454 pyrosequencing technology.
Biomethanization entails a good means to reduce the organic fraction (OF) derived from municipal solid wastes (MSW). The bacterial diversity of a full scale MSW anaerobic reactor located in MadridExpand
