  • Dissemination and survival of non-indigenous bacterial genomes in pristine Antarctic environments. 

    Ah Tow, Lemese; Cowan, Donald A. (Springer Verlag, 2005)
    Continental Antarctic is perceived as a largely pristine environment, although certain localized regions (e.g., parts of the Ross Dependency Dry Valleys) are relatively heavy impacted by human activities. The procedures ...
  • Endangered Antarctic microbial communities 

    Cowan, Donald A.; Ah Tow, Lemese (Annual Reviews, 2004)
    The Antarctic continent harbors a range of specialized and sometimes highly localized microbial biotopes. These include biotopes associated with desiccated mineral soils, rich ornithogenic soils, glacial and sea ice, ...
  • Non-specificity of Staphylococcus generic primers 

    Ah Tow, Lemese; Cowan, Donald A. (Society for General Microbiology, 2003)
    Our results allow us to conclude that there appears to be significant conservation between the tuf genes of Planococcus, Planomicrobium and Staphylococcus spp., and that although the primer set TstaG422/TStag765 has ...
  • PCR-based detection of non-indigenous microorganisms in ‘pristine’ environments 

    Baker, Gillian; Ah Tow, Lemese; Cowan, Donald A. (Elsevier, 2003)
    PCR-based technologies are widely employed for the detection of specific microorganisms, and may be applied to the identification of non-indigenous microorganisms in ‘pristine’ environments. For ‘pristine’ environments ...
