  • Metagenomics, gene discovery and the ideal biocatalyst 

    Cowan, Donald A.; Arslanoglu, A.; Burton, Stephanie G.; Cameron, Rory A.; Baker, Gillian; Smith, Jacques J.; Meyer, Quinton (Portland Press, 2004)
    With the rapid development of powerful protein evolution and enzyme-screening technologies, there is a growing belief that optimum conditions for biotransformation processes can be established without the constraints of ...
  • The search for the ideal biocatalyst 

    Burton, Stephanie G.; Cowan, Donald A.; Woodley, John M. (Nature Publishing Group, 2002)
    While the use of enzymes as biocatalysts to assist in the industrial manufacture of fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals has enormous potential, application is frequently limited by evolution-led catalyst traits. The advent ...
  • Selection of Clostridium spp. in biological sand filters neutralizing synthetic acid mine drainage 

    Ramond, Jean-Baptiste; Welz, Pamela J.; Le Roes-Hill, Marilize; Tuffin, Marla I.; Burton, Stephanie G.; Cowan, Donald A. (Wiley, 2013)
    In this study, three biological sand filter (BSF) were contaminated with a synthetic iron- [1500 mg L-1 Fe(II), 500 mg L-1 Fe(III)] and sulphate-rich (6000 mg L-1 SO2/4-) acid mine drainage (AMD) (pH = 2), for 24 days, to ...
  • Selection of diazotrophic bacterial communities in biological sand filter mesocosms used for the treatment of phenolic-laden wastewater 

    Ramond, Jean-Baptiste; Welz, Pamela J.; Tuffin, Marla I.; Burton, Stephanie G.; Cowan, Don A. (Springer Verlag, 2013)
    Agri effluents such as winery or olive mill waste-waters are characterized by high phenolic concentrations. These compounds are highly toxic and generally refractory to biodegradation. Biological sand filters (BSFs) represent ...
