  1. a The correlations are marked with asterisks corresponding to the level of statistical significance: 95% (*), 99% (**) and 99.9% (***). TRFs that are not included did not show any statistically significant correlation with any parameter. The sludge and effluent water parameter data was taken from[22]. b Identification by comparison with the RDP database. c Identification by comparison with the clone library. d The number of times the TRF was observed. e Standardized sludge volume index (ml/g). f Shear sensitivity (arbitrary units). g EPS protein (mg/gMLSS). h EPS carbohydrates (mg/gMLSS). i Effluent non-settleable solids (mg/l).
