Host specific differences in fatty acid methyl ester profiles of indicator organisms as a new tool for microbial source tracking

The objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that indicator organisms isolated from different host categories, i.e., from human and animal, would have distinctly different whole-cell fatty acid profiles that can be used to track sources of microbial pollution. The FAME profiles fecal colifo...
