- In this study, the effects of different temperature transitions on the dynamics of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and bacterial community were investigated during start-up of thermophilic anaerobic digestion (AD) of sewage sludge. Although two thermophilic reactors showed dissimilar removal efficiencies of ARGs in batch mode, both the removal efficiency and reduction patterns of ARGs were similar in continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR) mode, resulting in significant reduction of the total sum of the relative abundance of ARGs. Using network analysis to explore the correlation between bacterial community and some specific ARGs revealed that composition of the bacterial community played a vital role in the fluctuations in the relative abundance of the antibiotic resistome, demonstrating that shaping the development of ARGs was facilitated by vertical gene transfer. To facilitate eliminating ARGs, minimizing their hosts which persist even under long-term operations is vital in thermophilic AD.
