This thesis focuses on formulating and analyzing non linear models for microbial dynamics vis-a-vis human and environmental health. Firstly, we develop and investigate a stoichiometric organic matter decomposition model in a chemostat culture that incorporates the dynamics of grazers. This...
Whole genome sequence analysis of an alachlor and endosulfan degrading Pseudomonas strain W15Feb9B isolated from Ochlockonee River, FloridaDownload
We recently isolated a Pseudomonas sp. strain W15Feb9B from Ochlockonee River, Florida and demonstrated potent biodegradative activity against two commonly used pesticides - Alachlor [(2-chloro-2′,6′-diethylphenyl-N (methoxymethyl)acetanilide)] and Endosulfan...
The impact of various ozone pretreatment doses on the performance of endogenous microbial communities for the remediation of oils sands process-affected waterDownload
In this study, the effects of different ozone pretreatment doses on the performance of endogenous microbial populations in degrading naphthenic acids (Nash and Traver) for the treatment of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) were evaluated. The results showed that ozonation enhanced the...
Biological Treatment of Naphthenic Acids and Other Organic Compounds in Oil Sands Process-Affected WatersDownload
The Alberta oil sands contain one of the world’s largest reserves of oil - over 169 billion barrels of bitumen are economically recoverable with current extraction technologies. Surface mining, whereby the ore is extricated from the earth and bitumen is obtained via a hot water extraction...
Fat, oil, and grease (FOG) in wastewater can cause foul odor, sewer line blockage, and may interfere with sewage treatment. FOG control is approached with physical, chemical, and biological methods Many cities, including Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, have effectively applied commercial biological...
The impacts of ozonation on oil sands process-affected water biodegradability and biofilm formation characteristics in bioreactors

Efflux pumps belonging to the resistance-nodulation-division (RND) superfamily in bacteria are involved in antibiotic resistance and solvent tolerance but have an unknown physiological role. EmhABC, a RND-type efflux pump in the hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens LP6a,...
Effectiveness of ozonation treatment in eliminating toxicity of oil sands process-affected water to chironomus dilutus
