He SM, McMahon KD, Microbial Biotechnology 4(5): 603-619 Sep 2011. In this review, we focus on the metabolism, physiology, fine-scale population structure and ecological distribution of Accumulibacter, aiming to integrate the information learned so far and to present a more complete picture of the microbiology of this important bacterial group.
Newton RJ, Jones SE, Eiler A, et al., Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews 75(1): 14-49 Mar 2011. Here we present a new freshwater lake phylogeny constructed from all published 16S rRNA gene sequences from lake epilimnia and propose a unifying vocabulary to discuss freshwater taxa.
Skennerton CT, Angly FE, Bragg L, et al., Plos One 6(5): e20095 May 2011. Metagenomic data from an EBPR reactor dominated by Candidatus Accumulibacter phosphatis (CAP), led to the recovery of three complete and six partial phage genomes.
Read JS, Shade A, Wu CH, et al., Limnology and Oceanography-Methods 9: 14-28 Jan 2011. A Gradual Entrainment Lake Inverter (GELI) designed to destroy thermal stratification was constructed and used to destratify a darkly stained humic lake.
