Identification of Polyphosphate-Accumulating Organisms and Design of 16S rRNA-Directed Probes for Their Detection and Quantitation
ABSTRACT Laboratory-scale sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) as models for activated sludge processes were used to study enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) from wastewater. Enrichment forExpand

rRNA sequences and evolutionary relationships among toxic and nontoxic cyanobacteria of the genus Microcystis.
A primary-structure analysis of the 16S rRNA gene was performed with 10 strains representing five described and one unidentified species of the genus Microcystis. The phylogenies determinedExpand
