Gathers information about the morphology, ecophysiology, abundance and distribution of genus members in full-scale treatment systems with phylotype identity. MiDAS was primarily a taxonomic database curated for abundant and process important phylotypes for activated sludge wastewater treatment systems with biological nutrient removal. The repository also includes the organisms of the anaerobic digestion community and the most abundant influent wastewater organisms.
