The effects of anaerobic digestion (AD) on the abundance of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) are highly related to operational temperature. However, the removal performance of ARGs in psychrophilic AD and changed temperatures simulating variable seasonal temperatures is poorly understood. Herein, we investigated the fate of ARGs, correlated bacterial communities and physicochemical properties of AD operation at psychrophilic (15 ℃), mesophilic (35 ℃), and temperature changed conditions (15 to 35 ℃ and 35 to 15 ℃).
