  • The atmospheric movement of arid soil can play an important role in the movement of microorganisms attached to soil microparticles. Bacterial community structures in Asian dust collected at Beijing were investigated using the 16S rRNA gene sequence and compared to those in arid soil, a possible source of the dust. Asian dust samples contained 2.5×10(7) to 3.5×10(9) copies of the 16S rRNA gene gram(-1). Therefore, more than 10(13) bacterial cells (km)(-2) per month were estimated to arrive in… CONTINUE READING
