Bacterial community structure and metabolic function during solid waste decomposition were investigated using Illumina MiSeq sequencing and phylogenetic investigation of communities by reconstruction of unobserved states, respectively. Results showed that bacterial community diversity and structure differed in aerobic phase, anaerobic acid phase, and methanogenic phase. Anaerobic acid phase had significantly (p < 0.05) higher richness. Proteobacteria, Firmicutes, and Bacteroidetes were the dominant representatives with significant (p < 0.05) difference between three phases. Total nitrogen of solid waste and pH of leachate were the important factors in shaping bacterial community composition. Bacterial metabolism, information storage and processing, and cellular processes and signaling were the primary functions during solid waste decomposition. Key function genes (amo, nar, nis, and nos) profiles suggested that nitrification and denitrifiation mainly occurred in AP and both AP and MP, respectively.

The study of the structure, growth, function, genetics, and reproduction of bacteria, and BACTERIAL INFECTIONS.
Acquired or inborn metabolic diseases that produce brain dysfunction or damage. These include primary (i.e., disorders intrinsic to the brain) and secondary (i.e., extracranial) metabolic conditions that adversely affect cerebral function.
Bacterial enzymes of the DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I class that catalyze ATP-independent breakage of one of the two strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strand through the break, and rejoining of the broken strand. These bacterial enzymes reduce the topological stress in the DNA structure by relaxing negatively, but not positively, supercoiled DNA.
The collective designation of three organizations with common membership: the European Economic Community (Common Market), the European Coal and Steel Community, and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). It was known as the European Community until 1994. It is primarily an economic union with the principal objectives of free movement of goods, capital, and labor. Professional services, social, medical and paramedical, are subsumed under labor. The constituent countries are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
