MIDAS

Research is going on in the field of microbial molecular ecology and systems microbiology in relation to biological treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater using activated sludge, biofilms, MBR reactors and digesters. The overall aim is to understand structure and function of the entire ecosystems, factors controlling these, and design microbial communities that ensure an optimal operation.
