Microbial Source Tracking in Lake Michigan Erika Jensen, M.S. Great Lakes WATER Institute University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee April 14, 2005 Microbial Source Tracking (MST) Tracking the origin of fecal pollution using a variety of methods including: Microbial Genotypic Phenotypic Chemical Microbial Source Tracking What we can do: DNA Fingerprinting good for specific sites, e.g. flock of birds; VERY GOOD for determining growth in the environment Bacteroides Host Specific Species human marker + in sewage, cow marker + in manure Antibiotic Resistance Testing promising for course assessment

Viruses good for discriminating between human and non human contamination Microbial Source Tracking What we cannot do: Sample 10-20 E. coli and estimate host diversity in environment Human Dog Gulls Objective: Identify Sources of E. coli by Determining Host Specific Genetic Profiles Questions: 1. Are E. coli strains specific to a host? 2. Are E. coli genetically related according to: Host species, geographic location, selection? Challenges: 1. Genetic targets not defined 2. Genetic diversity between hosts/geographical range are unknown
