Microbial community analysis and identification of alternative host-specific fecal indicators in fecal and river water samples using pyrosequencing

Abstract

It is important to know the comprehensive microbial communities of fecal pollution sources and receiving water bodies for microbial source tracking. Pyrosequencing targeting the V1–V3 hypervariable regions of the 16S rRNA gene was used to investigate the characteristics of bacterial and Bacteroidales communities in major fecal sources and river waters… (More)
