Methods of Detecting Sources of Microorganism Contamination
Methods of detecting a source of a microbial contamination in a suspect sample include detecting at least one member selected from the group consisting of a microbial geosmin synthase, a microbial 2-methylisoborneol synthase and a microbial 2-methylgeranyl diphosphate synthase in the suspect sample. The method can include conducting a nucleic acid amplification assay in the presence of at least one member selected from the group consisting of at least one microbial geosmin primer and at least one microbial 2-methylisoborneol synthase primer on a sample obtained from a suspect source of the microbial contamination.
