Discrimination of Scutellospora castanea from arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi isolated in TENE primary forest (Centre west Côte d’Ivoire) and detection of repeated DNA sequences from its genome
Primers SC1 and SC2 primarily developed to be specific to Scutellospora castanea were used to unambiguously discriminate this species among endogenous arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi collected in Côte d’Ivoire. The cloning of genomic DNA from this fungus allowed the isolation of repeated DNA sequences. Sixteen inserts were randomly selected from the genomic bank and hybridized with...

Using nutrient utilization patterns to determine the source of Escherichia coli found in surface water
Identifying the sources of fecal contaminants in surface water bodies such as rivers, lakes and beaches is of importance for environmental safety, public health safety, food safety and regulatory purposes. Nutrient utilization patterns (NUPs) were used as a bacterial source tracking technique to identify the possible sources of fecal...
