PHOSPHORUS ACCUMULATING ORGANISMS REVEAL THEIR SECRETS: A GENOME LEVEL UNDERSTANDING OF ENHANCED BIOLOGICAL PHOSPHORUS REMOVAL
Genome-enabled analyses of microbial communities have generated tremendous insight into the structure and functioning of these complex assemblages. The recent sequencing of the metagenome of an enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) sludge has created the opportunity to study the expression of genes and pathways involved in this metabolism. Here we present preliminary data obtained through a multidisciplinary collaboration between engineers, microbiologists, and bioinformaticists, all focused on unraveling the basis for this remarkable metabolism that is used so widely for phosphorus removal from wastewaters.
