    Microbial Source Tracking presents a state-of-the-art review of the current technology and applications being utilized to identify sources of fecal contamination in waterways. This unique reference will be useful for environmental microbiologists and researchers in the food industry, especially scientists investigating etiological agents. Microbial source tracking (MST), which currently is largely focused on determining sources of fecal contamination in waterways, is also providing the scientific community tools for tracking both fecal bacteria and food-borne pathogens contamination in the food chain. Approaches to MST are commonly classified as library-dependent methods (LDMs Cited by:

    This chapter focuses on microbial source tracking (MST) techniques and methodologies, which can be used to discriminate between human and nonhuman sources of fecal contamination. Management and remediation of water pollution would be more cost-effective if the correct sources could be identified. This review provides an outline of the main methods that either have been used or have been suggested for use in microbial source tracking and some of the limitations associated with those by:

    Microbial source tracking uses qPCR to detect bacterial DNA originating from 13 fecal sources: Human, Cattle, Swine, Gull, Goose, Chicken, Dog, Deer, Elk, Horse, Bird, Beaver, and Ruminant Each water sample can be tested for multiple fecal sources. Identification of the faecal sources through microbes, known as microbial source tracking (MST), offers a diverse set of markers and methods to identify human and other faecal contamination sources. Since the s, great effort has been put into MST, and a great number of approaches have been assayed for identifying mostly human, ruminant Cited by: 5.

Microbial source tracking (MST) is a sub-discipline of environmental microbiology that has emerged and grown in response to the inability of conventional fecal indicator bacteria (such as Escherichia coli and enterococci) to discriminate among the many possible sources of fecal pollution in environmental waters.

MST’s current and potential applications range from beach. Microbial source tracking (MST) is a complex process that includes many decision-making steps.

Once a contamination problem has been defined, the potential user of MST tools must thoroughly consider study objectives before deciding upon a source identifier, a detection method, and an analytical approach to apply to the problem. Selection and Application of Microbial Source Tracking Tools For Water-Quality Investigations By Donald M.

Microbial source tracking by using host-associated bacterial genetic fecal makers was successfully applied as a supporting technique to complement standardized fecal indicator bacteria assays to answer the crucial question which source(s) of fecal pollution had to be considered (human vs.

livestock, wildlife) in the catchment. Microbial source tracking (MST) is a sub-discipline of environmental microbiology that has emerged and grown in response to the Microbial source tracking book of conventional fecal indicator bacteria (such as Escherichia coli and enterococci) to discriminate among the many possible sources of fecal pollution in environmental ’s current and potential applications range from beach.

Understanding the origin of fecal pollution is essential in assessing potential health risks as well as for determining the actions necessary to remediate the quality of waters contaminated by fecal matter. As a result, microbial source tracking (MST) has emerged as a field that has evolved and diversified rapidly since the first approaches were described only a decade ago.

RATIONALE BEHIND MICROBIAL SOURCE TRACKING METHODOLOGY. Various microbiological, genotypic, phenotypic, and alternative methods have been proposed to characterize groups of microorganisms, usually indicator organisms, for the purpose of detecting the subtle differences present within different groups of microorganisms that can subsequently Cited by: Summary This chapter contains sections titled: Introduction Microbial Source Tracking Approaches Used in Microbial Source Tracking Concluding Remarks Web Resources Review Questions Further Reading.

Microbial source tracking (MST) refers to a group of methods intended to discriminate between human and nonhuman sources of fecal contamination. Some methods are designed to differentiate between fecal contamination originating from individual animal species.

In response to the emergence of MST, there have been three large multi-laboratory method comparison studies (two in the US and one in. The goal of this brief summary chapter is to provide the readers with an overview of the chapters in Part II: Indicators and Microbial Source Tracking Markers.

Application of Source Tracking. A primary driver of microbial source tracking has been the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Total Maximum Daily Load or TMDL program. A TMDL is defined as the maximum amount of a pollutant the water body can receive, and still meet regulated limits for that by: 1.
