The objectives of this study were to investigate the fate of microorganisms by using cultivation methods as well as DNA analyses in a commercial microbiological additive (MA) in the course of the composting. Almost all the predominant species in the microbial succession during composting process determined by polymerase chain reaction-denaturing gradient(More)
We isolated ammonia-assimilating microorganisms from the livestock manure treatment systems and evaluated their ammonia-assimilating ability. Many isolates utilized ammonia at high rates when they were purely cultivated in a nitrogen-limited medium to which sterilized lagoon extract had been added. Some isolates that were immobilized in polyvinyl alcohol(More)
Scientific data processing and visualization of computational simulation data have played an important role in knowledge creation, and its transfer for the benefit of society, through scientific discovery and understanding of physical and chemical phenomena. Massively parallel processing architecture has greatly contributed to increase the computational(More)
In studies of habitat suitability at landscape scales, transferability of species-landscape associations among sites are likely to be critical because it is often impractical to collect datasets across various regions. However, limiting factors, such as prey availability, are not likely to be constant across scales because of the differences in species(More)
We investigated the structure of bacterial communities present in livestock manure-based composting processes and evaluated the bacterial succession during the composting processes. Compost samples were derived separately from swine manure, dairy manure and sewage sludge. The structure of the bacterial community was analyzed by polymerase chain(More)
