Traditionally, the detection of pathogens in water, wastewater, and other environmental samples is restricted by the ability to culture such organisms from complex environmental samples. During the last decade the use of molecular methods have supplied the means for examining microbial diversity and detecting specific organisms without the need for cultivation. The application of molecular techniques to the study of natural and engineered environmental systems has increased our insight into the… CONTINUE READING
