2006) have been applied in a limited number of MST studies. The spatio-temporal variation in the profiles of CUP and FAP is not able to identify the sources of fecal pollution. In contrast, ARP and serotyping methods are able to identify the sources correctly and these techniques are discussed in detail in this chapter. 1. Antibiotic Resistance Profiling (ARP) ARP has been used to discriminate humans and various animal sources by testing the isolates of fecal E. , 1999). ARP method is based on the underlying hypothesis that humans, domestic- and wild-animals have been exposed to different types of antibiotics, hence their fecal bacteria differ in types and levels of antibiotic resistance.

The F+ coliphages attach only to E. coli that has F plasmid. The F plasmid encodes F pilus, a site attachment for virus. The F+ coliphages have been separated into two types F+ DNA and F+ RNA coliphages. The F+ RNA coliphages have been biochemically and genetically characterized well. , 2006).
