Previous research demonstrated that methanogenic cultures enriched from Baltimore Harbor (Baltimore, MD) sediments were able to degrade naphthalene and phenanthrene. In this report, the degradation activity was maintained through a sequential transfer without adding additional sediments and the established polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-degrading methanogenic communities were characterized via comparative sequence analysis of clone libraries of 16S rRNA genes amplified using bacteria… CONTINUE READING
