Title

Diversity of tetracycline resistant bacterial isolates and disinfection treatment of swine lagoons

Abstract

"There has been little research looking at the degree of antibiotic resistance and the disinfection of the bacteria associated with animal wastes generated at concentrated animal feedings operations (CAFOs). To address this concern, the diversity of tetracycline resistance was evaluated by screening tetracycline resistant isolates for the presence of 18 different genes that confer tetracycline resistance"--Abstract, leaf iii.
