Analysis and quantification of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria community with amoA gene in sewage treatment plants.

Abstract

The analysis and quantification of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) is crucial, as they initiate the biological removal of ammonia-nitrogen from sewage. Previous methods for analyzing the microbial community structure, which involve the plating of samples or culture media over agar plates, have been inadequate because many microorganisms found in a sewage… (More)
