Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

1.7 The Entner-Doudoroff pathway. to pyruvic acid and glyceraldehyde-3-
phosphate. The latter is metabolized via glycolysis reactions to produce a second
molecule of pyruvate. In many aerobic bacteria the dissimilation is completed via
After making pyruvate by glycolysis, they remove a molecule of CO2 from
pyruvate to form acetaldehyde: Pyruvic acid ! Acetaldehyde þ CO2 The
acetaldehyde is the acceptor for the electrons of the NADH þ Hþ produced during
glycolysis and ...
Microorganisms can use alanine and glutamate to synthesize a number of new
amino acids via transamination reactions (transfer of a-amino groups). Such
amino acids include aspartic acid, serine, valine, isoleucine, leucine, arginine, ...
Acetyl CoA is made by the oxidation of pyruvic acid. Malonyl CoA is an energized
building block made from acetyl CoA. The malonyl group contains three carbon
atoms; the extra carbon comes from CO2 via the bicarbonate ion, HCO32, and ...
In such cases, providing a unique protein can be characterized and a partial
amino acid sequence can be determined, then a set of 'degenerate' primers can
be constructed. More than one triplet can code for a single amino acid. Hence the
