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.

molecules. The energy liberated by an exergonic reaction can be used to drive
an endergonic reaction if there is a reactant common to both reactions. This
common reactant in the trapping of energy is called an energy-rich or
For each molecule of glucose metabolized, two molecules of ATP are used up
and four molecules of ATP are formed. Therefore, for each molecule of glucose
metabolized by glycolysis, there is a net yield of two ATP molecules. The overall ...
results in a net yield of 38 ATP molecules. occurs when pyruvic acid is oxidized to
acetyl CoA by pyruvate dehydrogenase. Each of the two molecules of NADH so
formed can serve as the electron donor for an electron transport system, ...
Glycerol phosphatežNAD ž Two fatty acid molecules are linked to one molecule
of glycerol phosphate to form a molecule of phosphatidic acid, a simple
phospholipid. The cell can then link other chemical groups to the phosphate

DNA molecules can easily be separated into their component strands by heating.
At temperatures of about 958C the bonds that maintain the base pairs that hold
the two DNA strands together are broken and the strands separate. The strands ...
