- ... Cooling towers for heating, ventilation and air conditioning are ubiquitous in the built environment. Often located on rooftops, their semi-open water basins provide a suitable environment for microbial growth. They are recognized as a potential source of bacterial pathogens and have been associated with disease outbreaks such as Legionnaires’ disease. While measures to minimize public health risk ...

- ... Meat products are prone to adulteration by the replacement of meat from more expensive animal species with meat from cheaper sources. We present a DNA metabarcoding method allowing the identification and differentiation of 15 mammalian and six poultry species in foodstuffs. The method, developed on the MiSeq® platform, targets a mitochondrial 16S rDNA region recently found to be suitable for the d ...
