Bioaerosol characterisation in the transport environment

This study investigated the abundance and diversity of the airborne micro-organisms in the transport environment. Bacterial abundance was determined by qPCR and diversity by Illumina MiSeq sequencing of 16S rRNA gene. Examination of the aerosol microbiota encountered in public and transport micro-environments showed that that the choice of transport mode has a significant impact on the bioaerosol microbiome that passengers are exposed to.
