Title: Identification of culturable stream water bacteria from urban, agricultural, and forested watersheds using 16S rRNA gene sequencing

Author: Belt, Kenneth T.; Hohn, Christina; Gbakima, Aiah; Higgins, James A.

Date: 2007

Source: Journal of Water and Health. 5(3): 395-406.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: Bacteria present in water samples taken on a weekly basis, from June 2004 through June 2005, from three streams, were cultured on Coliscan® Easygel® agar plates. Colonies representative of a variety of colors and morphologies were subjected to amplification and sequencing of a 1000-1100 nt portion of the 16S rRNA gene. A total of 528 colonies were sequenced; these categorized into 26 genera and 78 species. Of 175 dark blue/purple colonies presumed to be E. coli, sequence analysis indicated that 45 (25%) were actually other genera.

Keywords: 16S rRNA, bacterial identification, freshwater bacteria, stream flora
