Jason Flowers Metabolic Characterization of Candidatus Accumulibacter Phosphatis Using Metaproteomic Analysis

In many freshwater bodies, phosphorus is a limiting nutrient for bacterial growth. To prevent eutrophication, enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) of waste water has been successfully applied at sewage plants for the past thirty years. Previous researchers could only speculate about the biochemical pathways involved in EBPR principally because the organisms responsible for EBPR cannot be isolated in pure culture. Using metagenomic data recently obtained from a Candidatus...

There is a glaring gap in microbial genome sequence availability – the currently available genome sequences show a highly biased phylogenetic distribution compared to the extent of microbial diversity known today. This bias has resulted in major limitations in our knowledge of microbial genome complexity and our understanding of the evolution, physiology and metabolic capacity of microbes. Although there have been small efforts in sequencing genomes from across the tree of life for...
