The nexus of syntrophy-associated microbiota in anaerobic digestion revealed by long-term enrichment and community survey.
Anaerobic digestion (AD) processes are known to effectively convert organic waste to CO2 and CH4 , but much of the microbial ecology remains unclear. Specifically, we have limited insights intoExpand

Chasing the elusive Euryarchaeota class WSA2: genomes reveal a uniquely fastidious methyl-reducing methanogen
The ecophysiology of one candidate methanogen class WSA2 (or Arc I) remains largely uncharacterized, despite the long history of research on Euryarchaeota methanogenesis. To expand our understandingExpand
