One of the major environmental concerns of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the ecological impact of the oil that reached shorelines of the Gulf Coast. Here we investigated the impact of the oil on the microbial composition in beach samples collected in June 2010 along a heavily impacted shoreline near Grand Isle, Louisiana.(More)
Werner syndrome (WS) is a disorder characterized by features of premature aging and increased cancer that is caused by loss of the RecQ helicase WRN. Telomeres consisting of duplex TTAGGG repeats in humans protect chromosome ends and sustain cellular proliferation. WRN prevents the loss of telomeres replicated from the G-rich strand, which can form(More)
UNLABELLED Bacterial community composition and longitudinal fluctuations were monitored in a riverine system during and after Superstorm Sandy to better characterize inter- and intracommunity responses associated with the disturbance associated with a 100-year storm event. High-throughput sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene was used to assess microbial(More)
Granules enriched with anammox bacteria are essential in enhancing the treatment of ammonia-rich wastewater, but little is known about how anammox bacteria grow and multiply inside granules. Here, we combined metatranscriptomics, quantitative PCR and 16S rRNA gene sequencing to study the changes in community composition, metabolic gene content and gene(More)
