|Detection, diversity, and activity on anaerobic ammonium oxidizing bacteria (Anammox) in the Cape Fear River Estuary
||Anammox is a new pathway in the nitrogen cycle, in which NH4+ oxidiation is coupled
to NO2- reduction to produce N2. Anammox was first discovered in a wastewater treatment plant
in 1995, and the process was attributed to bacteria that branch deeply...
|Molecular determination of arsenate respiring bacteria in estuarine sediments and groundwater
||Arsenic is a well-known metalloid and carcinogen with both natural and
anthropogenic origins. Arsenic occurs naturally in the environment as two primary
inorganic forms: arsenate [As(V)] and arsenite [As(III)]. Microbes mediate the presence
|Molecular determination of diatom community dynamics in Onslow Bay, NC, and Monterey Bay, CA
||Diatoms are one of the major primary producers supporting food webs in the ocean. Their
productivity could be linked to community composition. Temporal and spatial variation of
diatom communities may correlate with nitrogen sources and availability...
