Preliminary Data to Evaluate the Use of Precursor 16S rRNA as an Indicator of Viable Waterborne Pathogens in the Environment

The long-term objective of the principal investigator is to significantly reduce bacteria pollution on Lake Erie. The objective of this proposal, which is a critical step for meeting this long-term objective, is to collect preliminary data to demonstrate that precursor 16S rRNA can be used as an effective screening technology to identify viable waterborne pathogens and pathogenc indicators in the environment.
