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.

Water carries the solutes by transport mechanisms into the cell. Within the cell,
water is the solvent in which the cell's biochemical reactions occur. It is also the
medium for elimination of soluble waste substances from the cell. It is not
The cell can then link other chemical groups to the phosphate group of the
phosphatidic acid to make other phospholipids. For example, the amino acid
serine can be added to phosphatidic acid to make phosphatidylserine. Energy in
the form ...
The retrovirus particle contains an RNA genome but when the virus infects a host
cell, a DNA copy is made of the virus genome. This subsequently becomes
integrated into the genome of its host cell. This DNA copy of the virus RNA is
These will outgrow the animal cells and will thus destroy the tissue culture. If
microbial growth is not contained, viruses will be unrecoverable from sewage.
Dilutions of sewage material are typically made in phosphate buffered saline and
In its simplest form quantitative estimates of cell numbers can be determined in a
known volume of sample using a special microscope slide/cover slip combination
known as a Petroff-Hausser counting chamber. While this technique is simple it ...
