Metagenomic and network analysis reveal wide distribution and co-occurrence of environmental antibiotic resistance genes
A metagenomic approach and network analysis was used to investigate the wide-spectrum profiles of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and their co-occurrence patterns in 50 samples from 10 typicalExpand

Exploring variation of antibiotic resistance genes in activated sludge over a four-year period through a metagenomic approach.
In this study, the profiles of ARGs in activated sludge from the Shatin WWTP of Hong Kong were investigated using metagenomic analysis over a four-year period. Forty giga base pairs of metagenomicExpand

Immobilization of Zn, Cu, and Pb in contaminated soils using phosphate rock and phosphoric acid.
Considerable research has been done on P-induced Pb immobilization in Pb-contaminated soils. However, application of P to soils contaminated with multiple heavy metals is limited. The present studyExpand

Continental-scale pollution of estuaries with antibiotic resistance genes
Antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) have moved from the environmental resistome into human commensals and pathogens, driven by human selection with antimicrobial agents. These genes have increased inExpand

Antibiotic resistance genes and human bacterial pathogens: Co-occurrence, removal, and enrichment in municipal sewage sludge digesters.
Understanding which/how antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) contribute to increased acquisition of resistance by pathogens in aquatic environments are challenges of profound significance. We exploredExpand

The effect of aeration rate on forced-aeration composting of chicken manure and sawdust.
The composting of chicken manure and sawdust has been investigated in forced-aeration composting systems at aeration rates of 0.3, 0.5, and 0.7 l min(-1)kg(-1) organic matter (OM), corresponding toExpand
