Molecular characterization of microbial populations associated with zebra mussels in the Great Lakes.

Preliminary genetic fingerprinting of nucleic acids extracted from Lake Erie (i) mussels, (ii) mussel-associated sediments, (iii) free sediments, and (iv) lake water revealed a dependence of certain bacterial communities on the presence of the mussels.  In 2  4, additional sampling was conducted in Lake Ontario, Lake Erie (Pennsylvania) and in several other inland lakes in New York. In addition to microbial community structure analyses, metabolic profiling was conducted to determine the role of zebra mussels in the activities of the associated microbial community.
