Narrative:
Next-generation technologies increasingly play a central role in deciphering the complexity and diversity of human pathogens that are present in environmental samples. These technologies include massively parallel sequencing, microarrays, lab-on-a-chip technologies and bioinformatics. There is a need to develop these technologies to predict and manage human health risks posed by regulated and CCL3 pathogens in source and drinking water supplies.
