    Abstract: Silver get washed into sewerage systems and eventually to wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) due to its utilization in industries. This poses concerns about the toxicity of these particles to microorganisms which are involved in biodegradation of organic wastes in biological WWTP. Pseudomonas species (Biosensor cell A, B, C, D and E) originally isol... Show More
