|Dataset link||BES performance of S. oneidensis pure- and co-culture|
The BES was either operated with S. oneidensis alone, fed with lactate, or it was operated with S. oneidensis and L. lactis with glucose as primary substrate. The basic medium was a modified M4 medium containing 0.5 g/L yeast extract, 0.5 g/L trypton and 5 g/L glycerol phosphate, besides the commen M4 incredients. S. oneidensis oxidizes lactate to acetate and electrons in a BES - the latter generate a current at a graphite anode. The anode biofilm was harvested after about 4 weeks of continuous BES operation and subjected to total RNA extraction.
