The Activated Sludge Biomolecular Database
Abstract:Tremendous advances have recently been made in the development of molecular tools for analysis of microbial populations in the environment. However, an appropriate scientific basis for quantification of new molecular data must exist to effectively use these tools toward increased understanding of complex waste treatment environments and implementation of corrective actions to maintain or improve system performance. In particular, molecular tools are gaining widespread use in the study of activated-sludge microbial communities and have the potential to improve monitoring and control of wastewater treatment processes. The authors have created a Web-accessible database, the Activated Sludge Biomolecular Database, which provides a scientific basis for interpreting activated-sludge biomolecular information. The database achieves its goal by accumulating and disseminating a large body of knowledge relating the presence and quantity of specific biomolecules to process design, operating conditions, and wastewater characteristics.
