Improvement in methane production by

3.3. Microbial community
The composition of the microbial 17-ODYA was analyzed in order to gain insights into the improvement in methane production during fed-batch cultivation. The original sediment and the culture at the end of 10th round of cultivation were subjected to pyrosequencing of their 16S rRNA gene amplicons.
