Bacterial isolation and bioconversion of organic materials to industrial platform chemicals
Careful selection/isolation of the suitable microbial consortium for enzymatic saccharification of organic matters is a critical step in biofuels production. We isolated strains EF2, OW1-1 and HK2 from intestine of Eisenia ...
Isolation and characterization of bioconversion microbes and aerobic conversion of crude glycerol to value-added bioproducts
Renewable forms of energy are of significant interest in today’s economies. Biofuel is a renewable fuel produced by biological means. Biofuel is very useful because it does not have a finite supply, and it produces fewer ...
The impact of alternate pretreatment methods and osmotic dehydration for the preservation of wild blueberries (Vaccinium angustifolium)
This study investigated the effects of selected pretreatments and rigorous optimization of osmotic dehydration (OD) of lowbush blueberries using Response Surface Methodology (RSM) to produce dehydrated blueberries with ...
Characterization of sediment, sewage and 0157 E. coli: a comparison of their virulence genes, biofilm forming capacities, antibiotic resistance and level of reactive oxygen species (ROS)
Even though sediment Escherichia coli is a common source of contamination in freshwater environments, their virulence and physiological characteristics are not well studied. The goal of this study was to compare the virulence ...
Bioenergetic evaluation of a whole-lake nanosilver addition on Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens)
Nanosilver (nAg) is an antibacterial and antimicrobial agent. Its wide use in hundreds of commercial products and industrial applications suggests a high potential for release into the environment. Previous research indicates ...
