Characterizing bacterial assemblages in sediments and aerosols at a dry lake bed in Australia using high-throughput sequencing

Munday, Christopher; De Deckker, Patrick; Tapper, Nigel; O'Loingsigh, Tadhg; Allison, Gwen


Dust storms are responsible for the transport of a large quantity of bacteria from arid regions. A severe drought in the first decade of the new millennium in Australia increased the incidence of dust transport further. The major aims of this study were to characterize the bacterial communities in aerosols and their associated source sediments using high-throughput sequencing (HTS) and to investigate the possibility of using HTS to link dust to its source, which has not been previously...[Show more]
