Population dynamics of free-floating and attached bacteria in a styrene-degrading biotrickling filter analyzed by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis

Abstract

Population dynamics was studied in a 52-l biotrickling filter (BTF) operated for 182 days and used to clean air contaminated with styrene vapors. In the BTF, biomass grew either as free-floating (planktonic) or attached (sessile) microorganisms. PCR-amplified 16S rDNA fragments from planktonic and sessile cells within the bioreactor were analyzed using… (More)
