Autogenic versus environmental control during development of river biofilm
TLDR
Changing the incubation site during biofilm development modified the trajectory of these ecological successions, suggesting that site characteristics mainly conditioned the structure of these microbial communities.
Fate of the Herbicide Alachlor Exposed to Different Microbial Consortia in Aquatic Systems
TLDR
The influence of habitat type and thus environmental conditions on the structure and metabolic activity (alachlor degradation) of microbial communities, the importance of considering the influence of operating conditions (incubation period) when investigating microcosm study and the nature of chemical studied are confirmed.
Microbiota and Phage Therapy: Future Challenges in Medicine
TLDR
The aim is to highlight the great interest for phages not only to eliminate and control pathogenic bacterial infection but also in the near future to modulate the microbiota by adding new functions to selected bacteria species and rebalance the dynamic among phages and bacteria.
Effects of fullerene (C60), multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT), single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) and hydroxyl and carboxyl modified single wall carbon nanotubes on riverine microbial communities
TLDR
Observations indicated that at 500 μg L−1, carbon nanomaterials significantly alter aspects of microbial community structure and function supporting the need for further evaluation of their effects in aquatic habitats.
From Donor to Patient: Collection, Preparation and Cryopreservation of Fecal Samples for Fecal Microbiota Transplantation
TLDR
A process of donor safety screening for FMT is described compiling clinical and biological examinations, questionnaires and interviews of donors, and the risks and limits of this method of FMT are explored.
N,N‐Diethyl‐m‐Toluamide Exposure at an Environmentally Relevant Concentration Influences River Microbial Community Development
Studies of the South Saskatchewan River confirmed that N,N‐diethyl‐m‐toluamide (DEET) is ubiquitous at 10 to 20 ng/L, whereas in effluent‐dominated Wascana Creek, levels of 100 to 450 ng/L were
