The functional potential of the consortium MCSt-1 explored through genome characterization and reveal the presence of genes responsible for phosphorus metabolism and removal (pst operon and ppk), ammonia assimilation (amt), and nitrate; nitrite reductase (nar, nir, nor). Additionally, consortium members also annotated with the phenol, catechol and benzoate degradation, stress response, heavy metal and antibiotics resistance genes. Hence, the designed consortium MCSt-1 can withstand the harsh condition of treatment plants and serves as the best solution for enhancing wastewater treatment efficiency.
