The genetic structure of Escherichia coli populations in primary and secondary habitats

Gordon, David; Bauer, Sonja; Johnson, James R


Escherichia coli were recovered from the members of two two-person households and their associated septic tanks. The E. coli were isolated using selective and non-selective isolation techniques, characterized using the method of multi-locus enzyme electrophoresis and screened for the presence of virulence factors associated with extra-intestinal disease by using PCR. The growth rate-temperature relationships of strains from the two habitats were also determined. Temporal variation explained 25%...[Show more]
