engineered aquatic systems flow cytometry pthogen ougrowth fingerprinting biofouling legionella
This project will combine flow cytometry with advanced metagenomics to observe and quantify the response of a receiving microbial community to the invasion of Legionella sp.. Besides identifying characteristic patterns, particular attention will be given towards designing biological metrices which can be applied to predict potential pathogen invasions. The approach will then be validated with a laboratory and full-scale cooling water network.
