All samples for the “Global Database of Microbes in Wastewater Treatment Systems” are now received and the sequencing and analysis are well underway.

In total we have collected samples from 520 WWTPs located in 31 countries! Big thank you to all our collaborators.

We anticipate to deliver sequencing results to all the wastewater treatment plants involved in April/May 2019. The complete reference database will be public soon thereafter.
