Microbiologists, Researchers from Universities and Institutes, Epidemiologists, Risk Evaluators, Modelers, Officers from Public Health Sectors
The webinar will give an overview on available microbial source tracking (MST) technologies and faecal indicators to support wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE). The webinar will focus on data interpretation, improving data comparability and quality control from sewage surveillance activities. Presentation/discussion of MST markers and indicators (bacterial, viral, others) which enable:
Molecular (e.g. PCR based) and cultivation-based diagnostic methods will also be discussed.
This webinar will attract a global audience with interest in learning about how to investigate human specific faecal pollution in water environments to support wastewater based surveillance (WBE) and environmental water monitoring. Participants should have some knowledge of microbiology, public health and related disciplines, and an understanding of how to get epidemiology-related data from wastewater and environmental water monitoring.
Following this webinar, participants will know:
