Investigating metabolic versatility of ANAMMOX bacteria for bioremediation of nutrient pollution
•ANAMMOX (ANaerobic AMMonium Oxidation) bacteria are a genetically diverse group of organisms responsible for fixed nitrogen removal in anaerobic environments.
•Employed in wastewater treatment but are slow growing (3-7 days doubling time).
•Improving growth rates is key to widespread adoption.
•Genome scale metabolic modelling reveals rate limiting processes and insights into amelioration of these processes.
