The effects of exposure concentration on the bioaccumulation of four perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) was investigated using green mussels, and a new kinetic model based on adsorption mechanism was proposed, which potentially provide more accurate description of the bio Accumulation process of PFCs.
Fecal pollution source tracking toolbox for identification, evaluation and characterization of fecal contamination in receiving urban surface waters and groundwater.
Characterization of Metagenomes in Urban Aquatic Compartments Reveals High Prevalence of Clinically Relevant Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Wastewaters
Wastewaters from clinical isolation wards, in particular, had a exceedingly high levels of blaKPC-2 genes, encoding for carbapenem resistance, which suggests that hospital wastewaters derived from clinical specialty wards are hotspots for the spread of AMR.
