Sources and Transport Mechanisms for Escherichia coli Contaminationat Lake Michigan Beaches

Beach closures due to bacterial and viral contamination are becoming   a perennial problem at many beaches in the Great Lakes region and   elsewhere. This continuing project promises to advance the science   of indicator research through such biotechnological approaches as   DNA fingerprinting and antibiotic-resistance profiling as the   investigator attempts to track down and identify the transport   mechanisms, sources and fate of bacterial and viral contamination of   Lake Michigan beaches.    (Lake Michigan); (MST); (microbial source tracking); (BST);   (bacterial source tracking); (transport mechanisms); (E. coli);   (Escherichia coli); (DNA fingerprinting); (beach closure); (beach   closures); (beach closing); (beach closings); (ARA); (antibiotic-  resistance); (anitbiotic-resistance profiling)
