Sea Grant College Program
1. To evaluate whether the molecular profiles of sediments obtained with 13C MAS NMR are reflective of the degree and the nature of anthropogenic disturbance of coastal environments and can be used as geochemical indicators.
2. To evaluate whether the relative distribution and abundance of tetracycline
resistance genes in the sediments are reflective of the degree and the nature
of anthropogenic disturbance of coastal environments and can be used as microbial
