The focus of this study was to investigate the microbial community development and its influence on biomass characteristics and membrane fouling during start-up of a hybrid anoxic–oxic MBR. PCR–DGGE analysis indicated that the microbial community shifted in start-up period when a severe membrane fouling was observed. Small particle size, high fractal dimension (DF) and high EPS production, which were closely associated with microbial community, were found to be the major contributors to the severe fouling. Microbial community development was most likely the ultimate factor responsible for the severe membrane fouling.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/98981
