Effect of antibiotic use and composting on antibiotic resistance gene abundance and resistome risks of soils receiving manure-derived amendments
Manure-derived amendments are commonly applied to soil, raising questions about whether antibiotic use in livestock could influence the soil resistome (collective antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs)) and ultimately contribute ...
Antimicrobial Resistance Mitigation [ARM] Concept Paper
(Virginia Tech, 2017-05-15)
The development of viable solutions to the global threat of antimicrobial resistance requires a transdisciplinary approach that simultaneously considers the clinical, biological, social, economic, and environmental drivers ...
Microbial composition of purified waters and implications for regrowth control in municipal water systems
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-08-25)
The limits of water treatment to control microbial regrowth were examined using highly purified waters. Measurable microbial genetic material was detected in the product water in a survey of thirteen laboratory pure water ...
Effect of heat shock on hot water plumbing microbiota and Legionella pneumophila control
Abstract Background Heat shock is a potential control strategy for Legionella pneumophila in hot water plumbing systems. However, it is not consistently effective, with ...
Reclaimed water as a reservoir of antibiotic resistance genes: distribution system and irrigation implications
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2013-05-28)
reated wastewater is increasingly being reused to achieve sustainable water management in arid regions. The objective of this study was to quantify the distribution of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in recycled water, ...
Fecal Indicator Bacteria and Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Storm Runoff from Dairy Manure and Compost-Amended Vegetable Plots
(AMER SOC AGRONOMY, 2019-07-01)
© 2019 The Author(s). Re-use requires permission from the publisher. Given the presence of antibiotics and resistant bacteria in livestock manures, it is important to identify the key pathways by which land-applied ...
Metagenomic profiling of historic Colorado Front Range flood impact on distribution of riverine antibiotic resistance genes
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-12-05)
Record-breaking floods in September 2013 caused massive damage to homes and infrastructure across the Colorado Front Range and heavily impacted the Cache La Poudre River watershed. Given the unique nature of this watershed ...
Translating research to policy at the NCSE 2017 symposium “Microbiology of the Built Environment: Implications for Health and Design”
Abstract Here, we summarize a symposium entitled “Microbiology of the Built Environment: Implications for Health and Design” that was presented at the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) ...
