  1. Microbial diversity in an anaerobic digester with biogeographical proximity to geothermal active region – Rishi Mahajan & Gunjan Goel– Environmental Technology–DOI:10.1080/09593330.2016.1159733

    Microbial insight into a three decade old functional anaerobic digester with biogeographical proximity to geothermal active region suggests the presence of characteristic microbial representatives and complex metabolic bacterial and archaeal interactions. The absence of such characteristic microbial representatives in anaerobic digester (fed with similar substrates), located far from the geothermal active region can be attributed to the variation due to the characteristic physicochemical properties of water in the geothermal active region. The high concentrations of nitrate, sulphide, sulphite and other inorganic elements might have favored establishment of specific bacterial-archaeal associations in anaerobic digester with close proximity to geothermally active region. Future studies based on metagenomic and trascriptomics profiling could help in examining how these microbial communities interact and influence the performance/efficiency of anaerobic digester, with close proximity to geothermal active region.
