Enriching Acidophilic Fe(II)-oxidizing Bacteria in No-flow, Fed-batch Systems
Authors:  Yizhi Sheng, Bradley Kaley and William D. Burgos, date: 02/05/2017, view: 6199, Q&A: 0
Low-pH microbial Fe(II) oxidation occurs naturally in some Fe(II)-rich acid mine drainage (AMD) ecosystems across so-called terraced iron formations. Indigenous acidophilic Fe(II)-oxidizing bacterial communities can be incorporated into both passive ...
