Characterising and tracking Australian desert dust and its sources
The Lake Eyre Region (LER) in Australia is the primary source of dust in the southern hemisphere. Little is known about the microbial ecology of this area, and its relationship if any to the bacteria found in dust and aerosols. Initially, sediment and adjacent aerosol samples were collected from a small lake in Victoria which routinely deflated. Bacterial populations in both samples were compared by culturing followed by Rep-PCR, and 16S rRNA high throughput sequencing (HTS). Bacillus subtilis...[Show more]
