Mullins, D., Lepesteur, M., Simon, T. and Ho, G.E. (2003) DNA for biosolids management: A new era? In: ORBIT 2003 Organic Recovery and BIological Treatment Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference of ORBIT Association on Biological Processing of Organics: Advances for a Sustainable Society, 30 April - 2 May 2003, Perth, Western Australia
Contact with contaminated soils has been identified as a possible mechanism of giardiasis infection. The inadequacy of current methods to reliably detect pathogens in waste highlights the need for development of new tools. Some molecular-based methods have been developed for the detection of pathogens in soils, compost products and biosolids. The new achievements will be reviewed and their application in the context of waste management discussed.
