Major Versus Minor Cultures• Major Cultures Grow rapidly Settle well Control the general nature of the biomass• Minor Cultures Produce important results Are more difficult to maintain in the biomass
How Does Bioaugmentation Work? • Numbers – By adding cultures regularly the minor cultures (but important cultures) gain a survival advantage (against the dominant cultures). • Natural Genetic Interchange – Recent work indicates the possibility of transfer to the biomass of desirable and needed characteristics (but not permanently), particularly capabilities controlled by the plasmids in the cells and demanded by the conditions in the system.
