Revealing the electrochemically driven selection in natural community derived microbial biofilms using flow-cytometry

Abstract

In this communication we demonstrate that electrochemically active microbial biofilms and their enrichment at the anode of a microbial bioelectrochemical system (BES) can be quantitatively and easily characterized by flow-cytometry. This analysis revealed that the anodic biofilm of a BES, formed from a highly diverse microbial community and fed with single substrate artificial wastewater, was dominated by only one phylotype.
