GLIN==> UPCOMING SEMINAR



Dr. Kelly Goodwin from the NOAA Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratories will be giving a seminar at GLERL as a part of the NOAA/UM Great Lakes and Human Health Seminar Series.

Please find details of her talk, inclduing an abstract for this presentation, listed below.

Date: Tuesday, November 15

Time: 10:30 am

Title: "Biotechnology development for monitoring coastal water quality"

Speaker: Dr. Kelly Goodwin <http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/ocd/people/goodwin/>, NOAA Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratories

Adapting biotechnology originally developed for clinical use is a promising means to address ocean and human health issues. Molecular biological methods have the potential to provide rapid monitoring of organisms that require closure of fisheries or recreational waters. This talk will describe two molecular approaches that are being adapted to detect fecal indicating bacteria, harmful algae, and source tracking markers. One approach, electrochemical biosensors, identifies microbes by monitoring an electric current resulting from the oxidation or reduction of molecular markers. Another approach, the Luminex 100 System, is a suspension array technique that allows rapid, high-throughput, multiplexed detection of targets.
