  • Pathogens
  • Human health risks from exposure to zoonotic pathogens aerosolized during manure irrigation are not well understood. (usgs.gov)
  • To attain sufficient die-off of pathogens in order to reduce risks to acceptable levels, facilities that permit the long-term storage of locally collected faeces are required. (diva-portal.org)
  • While failures in distribution are more likely to result in detectable waterborne disease outbreaks, the number of people at risk of becoming infected with pathogens passing normal treatment, calculated on a yearly basis, can be larger. (diva-portal.org)
  • Here, we introduce MetaCompare, a publicly available tool for ranking 'resistome risk', which we define as the potential for antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) to be associated with mobile genetic elements (MGEs) and mobilize to pathogens based on metagenomic data. (deepdyve.com)
  • antibiotics resistance gene, resistome, resistome risk, metagenomics, environmental samples INTRODUCTION The acquisition of antibiotic resistance by bacterial pathogens is of global concern, as it undermines available therapeutics for treating and preventing serious infections (World Health Organization 2014). (deepdyve.com)
  • The mitigation of pathogens in the water source lowers the risk for infection associated with nominal and suboptimal drinking water treatment. (dissertations.se)
  • Detection of Pathogens in Water Using Micro and Nano-Technology aims to promote the uptake of innovative micro and nano-technological approaches towards the development of an integrated, cost-effective nano-biological sensor useful for security and environmental assays.

  • infection
  • Norovirus infection and illness are increasingly used as end-points in sewage-related health risk assessments, especially as data from clinical trials outbreak studies have recently become available. (byu.edu)
  • When working or spending time in the garden the annual risk of infection by Ascaris was still slightly above 10 -4 in these scenarios, although the incidence rate for Ascaris is very low in the population in question. (diva-portal.org)
  • Bacterial
  • Research Interests: bacterial degradation of aromatic hydrocarbons and man-made environmental pollutants. (asm.org)
  • To that end, dust samples that had been collected once from the living room floors of 286 individual households, were profiled for fungal and bacterial community variation and diversity using microbial fingerprinting techniques. (microbe.net)
  • Using a quantitative PCR approach, and targeting the archaeal and bacterial 16S rRNA genes in floor dust samples, we found that Archaea are a common part of the indoor microbiota, 5.01 ±â€‰0.14 (log 16S rRNA gene copies/g dust, mean ±â€‰SE) in bedrooms and 5.58 ±â€‰0.13 in common rooms, such as living rooms. (microbe.net)
  • systematic
  • While numerous studies have highlighted the importance of environmental sources and pathways of the spread of antibiotic resistance, a systematic means of comparing and prioritizing risks represented by various environmental compartments is lacking. (deepdyve.com)
  • Sciences
  • Forests worldwide are at increased risk of death from drought, which is occurring more frequently and are more severe, according to researchers at the University of Stirling in Scotland.Sarah Greenwood, a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Stirling's Faculty of Natural Sciences, said:We can see that the death of trees caused by drought is consistent across different environments around the world.

  • pathways
  • Infectious disease can be transmitted via various environmental pathways, many of which are incorporated into our water and wastewater systems. (diva-portal.org)
  • Thus, there is a need to develop means to track and control the spread of antibiotic resistance, with growing interest in understanding the role of environmental sources and pathways by which antibiotic resistance may spread. (deepdyve.com)

  • indoor
  • Showers were the driving indoor exposure risk compared to sinks and toilets. (katinamichael.com)
  • Based upon these results, at typical indoor temperature and RH, a 6-log reduction in titer would expected to be achieved within 1 h as the result of environmental decay on surfaces without active decontamination. (microbe.net)
  • Moreover, the study involved a quantitative and qualitative microbiological assessment of the indoor air in the room where the parchment was kept. (microbe.net)
  • resistome
  • Based on the assembled metagenomes, samples are projected into a 3-dimensionalhazard space and assigned resistome risk scores. (deepdyve.com)
