    Yuya Sato et al. present de novo RNA sequencing of microbial communities from two activated sludge bioreactors that differ in their heavy-oil degradation performance. They find that the higher performing bioreactor showed higher expression of nitrification genes, even though nitrifiers represent a small minority of the community.
