- Comparative fecal metagenomics unveils unique functional capacity of the swine gutRegina Lamendella
National Risk Management Research Laboratory, U S Environmental Protection Agency, Cincinnati, OH 45268, USA
BMC Microbiol 11:103. 2011..Nonetheless, limited information on the functional diversity of the swine gut microbiome is available...
- Evaluation of swine-specific PCR assays used for fecal source tracking and analysis of molecular diversity of swine-specific "bacteroidales" populationsRegina Lamendella
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio 452211, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 75:5787-96. 2009..Overall, due to nontarget cross amplification and poor geographic stability of currently available host-specific PCR assays, development of additional assays is necessary to accurately detect sources of swine fecal pollution...
- Molecular diversity of Bacteroidales in fecal and environmental samples and swine-associated subpopulationsRegina Lamendella
University of Cincinnati, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Cincinnati, OH, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 79:816-24. 2013..This study further demonstrates the importance of elucidating the diversity patterns of targeted bacterial groups to develop more inclusive fecal source tracking applications...
- Phylogenetic diversity and molecular detection of bacteria in gull fecesJingrang Lu
U S Environmental Protection Agency, National Risk Management Research Laboratory, Cincinnati, OH 45268, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 74:3969-76. 2008..Due to the widespread presence of this species in gulls and environmental waters contaminated with gull feces, targeting this bacterial species might be useful for detecting gull fecal contamination in waterfowl-impacted waters...
- Bifidobacteria in feces and environmental watersRegina Lamendella
Department of Environmental Engineering, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio 45220, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 74:575-84. 2008..Overall, the results suggest that the use of bifidobacterial species as potential markers to monitor human fecal pollution in natural waters may be questionable...
- Identification of bacterial populations in drinking water using 16S rRNA-based sequence analysesRandy P Revetta
US Environmental Protection Agency, 26 W Martin Luther King Dr, Cincinnati, OH 45268, USA
Water Res 44:1353-60. 2010..Moreover, these results provide the sequence foundation for the development of molecular assays that target active drinking water bacteria...
- Identification of Naegleria fowleri in warm ground water aquifersIan Laseke
Dep of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Univ of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, USA
J Environ Qual 39:147-53. 2010..Bacterial community analyses revealed a very diverse community structure in ground water samples testing positive for N. fowleri...
- Assessment of fecal pollution sources in a small northern-plains watershed using PCR and phylogenetic analyses of Bacteroidetes 16S rRNA geneRegina Lamendella
Department of Environmental Engineering, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, USA
FEMS Microbiol Ecol 59:651-60. 2007..Moreover, additional data is needed in order to understand the distribution of Bacteroidetes host-specific markers and their relationship to water quality regulatory standards...
- Microbial community structure during nitrate and perchlorate reduction in ion-exchange brine using the hydrogen-based membrane biofilm reactor (MBfR)Steven W Van Ginkel
National Risk Management Research Laboratory, Environmental Protection Agency, Cincinnati, OH 45268, USA
Bioresour Technol 101:3747-50. 2010..The clone libraries contained no known perchlorate-reducing bacteria, which suggest that denitrifiers carried out perchlorate reduction, probably by secondary-utilization...
