    Land application of wood ash is becoming more appealing, as a disposable alternative, to landfilling options. It is estimated that 110,000 tonnes of wood ash is produced annually in Alberta by cogeneration systems, a large ...
  • Graham, Thomas A.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1995Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 1995)
    The 16S/23S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) intergenic space (IGS) regions from pathogenic and non-pathogenic species (spp.) of Listeria were characterized by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and DNA sequencing. DNA sequencing ...
  • Kruczkiewicz, Peter (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2013Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2013)
    Although increased genome sequencing e orts have increased our understanding of genomic variability within many bacterial species, there has been limited application of this knowledge towards assessing current molecular ...
  • Paquette, Sarah-Jo (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2011)
    Escherichia coli O157:H7 is an enteric pathogen that can cause severe gastrointestinal disease, sometimes leading to hospitalization and death. These bacteria have a variety of virulence factors that can be encoded for on ...
  • Ross, Susan; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2010)
    This thesis reports the development of Comparative Genomic Fingerprinting (CGF), a rapid genotyping method for Campylobacter jejuni that assesses the conservation status of 20 genes previously described as having high ...
  • Groft, Donald G.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1997Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 1997)
    Bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) populations from Alberta river drainage systems were compared using molecular techniques. Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLP's) within the NDI and ND5/6 regions of the ...
  • Lee, Ee Lynn; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2009Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2009)
    Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) is a medicinal plant with potential applications in the natural health product industry. In a multi-environmental setting, 10 genotypes were tested across 14 growing environments ...
  • Lang, Cassandra C.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2005)
    Metabolic were used to evaluate Enterococcus as an indicator of faecal pollution. Enterococci were isolated using m-Enterococcus agar and speciated using conventional biochemical tests. Forty percent of the isolates were ...
  • Sikora, Christopher A.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, AB : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2003Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2003)
    Francisella tularensis is one of a small group of bacteria recognized for their virulence and potential for use as biological weapons. In this study we utilize a novel approach to identify an immunologically prominent ...
  • Prasad, Rajib (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2011)
    Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) was recently introduced to western Canada as a forage crop. To reach its full potential, high yielding, early maturing fenugreek cultivars that produce good seed yield and quality ...
