Effect of Ozone Treatment on Inactivation of Escherichia coli and Listeria sp. on Spinach (2015)
Journal Article
Wani, S., Maker, J., Thompson, J., Barnes, J., & Singleton, I. (2015). Effect of Ozone Treatment on Inactivation of Escherichia coli and Listeria sp. on Spinach. Agriculture, 5(2), 155-169. https://doi.org/10.3390/agriculture5020155

The efficacy of “gaseous” ozone in reducing numbers and re-growth of food-borne pathogens, (Escherichia coli and Listeria spp.), on leafy salads was investigated using spinach. A preliminary in vivo study showed 1-log reduction in six strains of E. c... Read More about Effect of Ozone Treatment on Inactivation of Escherichia coli and Listeria sp. on Spinach.

Analysis of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria populations in acid forest soil during conditions of moisture limitation (2000)
Journal Article
Hastings, R. C., Butler, C., Singleton, I., Saunders, J. R., & McCarthy, A. J. (2000). Analysis of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria populations in acid forest soil during conditions of moisture limitation. Letters in applied microbiology, 30(1), 14-18. https://doi.org/10.1046/j.1472-765x.2000.00630.x

Ammonia-oxidizer numbers decreased under conditions of moisture limitation in litter, fermentation and humus layers of forest soil in the field, but the extent of regrowth after rehydration varied between layers. Nitrosospira 16S rRNA genes were ampl... Read More about Analysis of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria populations in acid forest soil during conditions of moisture limitation.

Determination of NTA and EDTA and Speciation of Their Metal Complexes in Aqueous Solution by Capillary Electrophoresis (2000)
Journal Article
Owens, G., Ferguson, V. K., McLaughlin, M. J., Singleton, I., Reid, R. J., & Smith, F. A. (2000). Determination of NTA and EDTA and Speciation of Their Metal Complexes in Aqueous Solution by Capillary Electrophoresis. Environmental science & technology, 34(5), 885-891. https://doi.org/10.1021/es990309m

The interest in the use of chelates for enhancing metal uptake by plants during phytoremediation and their widespread use in plant nutrient research requires that an easy, reproducible method be developed for chelate detection in a variety of systems...

Persistence and effects of fenamiphos on native algal populations and enzymatic activities in soil (1999)
Journal Article
Megharaj, M., Singleton, I., Kookana, R., & Naidu, R. (1999). Persistence and effects of fenamiphos on native algal populations and enzymatic activities in soil. Soil Biology and Biochemistry, 31(11), 1549-1553. https://doi.org/10.1016/s0038-0717%2899%2900078-4

Fenamiphos is a commonly and widely used nematicide and insecticide in agriculture but information on its effects on microorganisms in soil is scarce. The microbial role in the persistence of fenamiphos in soil was determined by comparing the relativ...

Diversification of Pseudomonas corrugata 2140 produces new phenotypes altered in GC-FAME, BIOLOG, and in vitro inhibition profiles and taxonomic identification (1999)
Journal Article
Barnett, S. J., Alami, Y., Singleton, I., & Ryder, M. H. (1999). Diversification of Pseudomonas corrugata 2140 produces new phenotypes altered in GC-FAME, BIOLOG, and in vitro inhibition profiles and taxonomic identification. Canadian journal of microbiology, 45(4), 287-298. https://doi.org/10.1139/w99-006

Bacteria are known to rapidly produce new phenotypes, but it is unclear how phenotype "plasticity" relates to studies on the population ecology of bacteria in complex environments. We characterised a collection of 14 spontaneous phenotype variants, d...

Metal cation uptake by yeast: a review (1995)
Journal Article
Blackwell, K. J., Singleton, I., & Tobin, J. M. (1995). Metal cation uptake by yeast: a review. Applied microbiology and biotechnology, 43(4), 579-584. https://doi.org/10.1007/s002530050454

This review addresses metal uptake specifically by yeast. Metal uptake may be passive, active or both, depending on the viability of the biomass, and is influenced by a number of environmental and experimental factors. Uptake is typically accompanied...

Considerations on the use of commercially available yeast biomass for the treatment of metal-containing effluents (1995)
Journal Article
Simmons, P., Tobin, J. M., & Singleton, I. (1995). Considerations on the use of commercially available yeast biomass for the treatment of metal-containing effluents. Journal of industrial microbiology, 14(3-4), 240-246. doi:10.1007/bf01569934

Three strains ofSaccharomyces cerevisiae and one strain of aCandida sp. obtained from different industrial sources were screened for uptake of silver and copper. Considerable differences in metal uptake capacities were found between the different str...
