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...

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,...
The impacts of ozonation on oil sands process-affected water biodegradability and biofilm formation characteristics in bioreactors
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...
The Upper Devonian Grosmont reservoir in Alberta, Canada, is the single largest carbonate bitumen reservoir in the world, with an estimated 400 billion barrels of bitumen in place. The Grosmont bitumen formed from light crude oil via extensive biodegradation, which produced extremely high in-situ...
To ensure oil sands process water (OSPW) is suitable for discharge into the environment, advanced water treatment technologies are required. In this study, integrated ozonation-biodegradation was investigated as a potential treatment option for OSPW. The treatment efficiency was evaluated in...
Carbon isotope analyses of gases extracted from drilling muds while drilling in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) can be used to create carbon isotopic depth profiles. These profiles provide essentially continuous data through the stratigraphic section, offering a unique opportunity to...
