    Abstract
    Microorganisms are responsible for the conversion and breakdown of organic compounds and contaminants in bioreactors designed for the treatment of different types of waste. Organized in highly complex communities, they are the heart of every wastewater treatment plant and solid residue landfill. The detailed characterization of these communities and their taxonomic classification based on phylogenetic data are of great utility in monitoring the responses of the system to changing operational parameters and the development and optimization of favorable conditions within the...
