E. coli Source Tracking by Rep-PCR DNA Fingerprinting

The rep-PCR DNA fingerprinting technique is an easy, reliable, and   reproducible technique for E. coli source determination. This   project amplified DNA sequences between repetitive elements in the   E. coli genome from local streams and lakes in Minnesota, and   generated unique patterns of PCR products for each strain.    (microbial source tracking); (MST); (bacterial source tracking);   (BST); (polymerase chain reaction); (PCR); (Rep-PCR); (Minnesota)
