Characteristics of antibiotic resistant bacteria in raw and drinking water from water production facilities
(North-West University (South Africa), 2019)
Water is a limited resource, and the quality of raw water has an impact on drinking water production. Regular testing is done to ensure that the quality is compliant with regulations. Heterotrophic bacteria are widely used ...
Characterization of microbial assemblages on micro-plastics in a river system
(North-West University (South Africa), 2021)
Microplastics as pollutants originate from land-based sources and are persistent and ubiquitous in the aquatic environment. The risks posed by microplastics as vectors and habitats for potentially harmful microbial groups ...
Molecular quantification and characterisation of aminoglycoside resistant bacteria and genes from aquatic environments
(North-West University, 2018)
Antibiotic resistance bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) could be disseminated and selected for in the environment, particularly aquatic ecosystems. This is due to the interplay between humans, animals and ...
Microplastic associated Enterobacteriaceae biofilms in marine sewage plant outfalls
(North-West University (South Africa), 2023)
Microplastics are small (<5 mm) plastic debris and cause a virtually ubiquitous form of pollution in marine settings. They have been found in all compartments ranging from sea ice to sediments, beaches, and the open ocean. ...
