Molecular Tools for the Detection and Quantification of by Rainer Kurmayer,Kaarina Sivonen,Annick Wilmotte,Nico Salmaso

By Rainer Kurmayer,Kaarina Sivonen,Annick Wilmotte,Nico Salmaso

A advisor to cutting-edge molecular instruments for monitoring and dealing with the toxigenicity of cyanobacteria

Runaway eutrophication and weather switch has made the tracking and administration of toxigenic organisms within the world’s our bodies of water extra pressing than ever. so that it will impression public coverage concerning the detection and quantification of these organisms, it really is incumbent upon scientists to elevate the attention of coverage makers in regards to the elevated prevalence of toxigenic cyanobacteria and the threats they pose. As molecular equipment can deal with many samples briefly time and aid determine toxigenic organisms, they're trustworthy, cost effective instruments to be had for monitoring toxigenic cyanobacteria all over the world. This quantity fingers scientists with the instruments they should music toxigenicity in floor waters and nutrition provides and, with a bit of luck, to strengthen new innovations for dealing with the unfold of poisonous cyanobacteria.

This instruction manual deals the 1st finished remedy of molecular instruments for tracking toxigenic cyanobacteria. becoming out of the findings of the landmark ecu Cooperation in technology and expertise Cyanobacteria venture (CYANOCOST), it offers unique, useful insurance of the whole array of obtainable molecular instruments and protocols, from water sampling, nucleic acid extraction, and downstream analysis—including PCR and qPCR established methods—to  genotyping (DGGE), diagnostic microarrays, and group characterization utilizing next-gen sequencing techniques.

  • Offers an summary of the most recent tendencies within the box, whereas supplying a beginning for knowing and utilizing the instruments and methods described
  • Provides targeted assurance of the complete diversity of molecular instruments at present to be had, with professional assistance at the research and interpretation of results
