This talk will give a reflection of research progress in applied and environmental microbiology with a key focus on several major new discoveries made on microorganisms with new physiological and biochemical capabilities. Both nitrite-dependent ammonium oxidation bacteria and methane oxidizing microorganisms (commonly called anammox and n-damo, respectively), and also the expanding Archaea in the time of metagenomics era will be used as examples to support my view and synthesis. Anammox bacteria are used as a unique example to show the history of a new scientific discovery, its evolutionary meaning and successful practical applications in removal of inorganic nitrogen from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and strategies. Prediction on future important new discoveries will also be touched on.
