  1. 1. Microbial Degradation of Toxaphene

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Martha Lacayo; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; kontroll av utsläpp; Miljöteknik; pollution control; Enterobacter; Environmental technology; Bjerkandera; Toxaphene; Biodegradation; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : This works deals with the degradation of a group of recalcitrant compounds known as toxaphene. Toxaphene is a complex mixture of chlorinated compounds including hexa- and octachlorocamphenes, hepta-, nona- and decachlorobornanes. Some components of toxaphene are very persistent while others are degraded rapidly by both abiotic and biotic processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel Moderate Halophiles: Application of Halomonas boliviensis in Biopolyester Production

    University dissertation from Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Jorge Quillaguaman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biotechnology; biopolymers; Polymer technology; poly b-hydroxybutyrate accumulation; moderate halophile; Halomonas boliviensis; Chromohalobacter sarecencis; Polymerteknik; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : The south-west Andean region of Bolivia has vast landscapes comprising salt deserts and dry lands interspersed with a number of saline lakes. Much of this region lies above 4000 m above sea level that allows the survival of limited and unique flora and fauna. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anaerobic Digestion – Microbial Ecology, Improved Operational Design and Process Monitoring

    University dissertation from Siv Holmqvist, Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Marika Murto; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; monitoring; UASB; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; methanogens; fluorescence in situ hybridisation; FISH; co-digestion; biogas; biofilm; aqueous two phase system; anaerobic digestion; 16S rDNA; alkalinity;

    Abstract : The implementation of anaerobic digestion is important in the concept of sustainable development, especially regarding the environmental benefits. Biogas is produced when organic matter is degraded by microorganisms under oxygen-free (anaerobic) conditions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lactobacillus in semi-hard cheese and their use as adjunct cultures

    University dissertation from Department of Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Martin Antonsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Livsmedelsteknik; Food and drink technology; Adjunct culture; NSLAB; Non-starter Lactic acid bacteria; Cheese ripening; Model cheese; Lactobacillus paracasei; Cheese; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : The microflora of Herrgård cheese produced at three dairies was compared after three and six months maturation. The microflora of cheeses from two of the dairies was dominated by a spontaneous microflora of Lactobacillus after three months of ripening, while starter bacteria still dominated in cheese from the third dairy after six months.

  5. 5. A thermostable alkaline protease from a new alkaliphilic Nesterenkonia sp

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Shahrzad Bakhtiar; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; substrate specificity; crystallization; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; DNA-DNA hybridisation; 16S rDNA analysis; phenotypic characterisation; circular dichroism; differential scanning calorimetry; Nesterenkonia abyssinica; stability; calcium-independent; alkaline protease; alkaliphilic;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns a novel alkaline protease produced by an extremophilic microbial specie, designated as AL20, isolated from a feather sample collected at the shore of the alkaline soda lake Abjata in the Ethiopian Rift Valley. The isolate is a heterotrophic, alkaliphilic, halotolerant gram-positive, strictly aerobic, non-motile, non-spore forming bacterium. READ MORE
