The bacterial community structure of a fluidized-bed reactor fed by vinasses (wine distillation waste) was analyzed. After PCR amplification, four small-subunit (SSU) rDNA clone libraries of Bacteria, Archaea, Procarya, and Eucarya populations were established. The community structure was determined by operational taxonomic unit (OTU) phylogenetic analyses(More)
The structures of the bacterial and archaeal communities in an anaerobic digester were monitored over a 2 year period. The study was performed on a fluidized bed reactor fed with vinasse. The objective was to characterize the population dynamics over a long time period under constant environmental parameters. Total bacterial and archaeal populations were(More)
Nine bacterial strains that grew on morpholine and pyrrolidine as sole carbon, nitrogen, and energy sources were isolated from three different environments with no known morpholine contamination. One of these strains could also degrade piperidine. These bacteria were identified as Mycobacterium strains. A phylogenetic analysis based on the partial 16S rDNA(More)
Twenty-eight bacterial strains were isolated from an ecosystem adapted to fluctuating oxic–anoxic conditions. This ecosystem comprised a mixture of different natural and wastewater treatment environments. Among the 28 strains isolated, 10 exhibited aerobic denitrifying activity, i.e., co-respiration of oxygen and nitrate and simultaneous production of(More)
The applicability of a new molecular fingerprinting method (Single Strand Conformation Polymorphism) to study the microbial populations of anaerobic digestors was investigated. After extraction of total nucleic acids, the 16S rDNA and 16S rRNA molecules were amplified and the amplicons were separated by SSCP electrophoresis. Characteristic and complex peak(More)
Molecular inventory of an anaerobic digestion microbial ecosystem. The bacterial community structure of a fluidised bed reactor fed by vinasses was analysed by molecular identification. After polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification, three 16S ribosomal deoxyribonucleic acid (rDNA) clone libraries of Bacteria, Archaea and Procarya populations were(More)
