I have been isolating a variety of organisms from waste water treatment plant and hospital sewage for the last five years. These bacteria includes ESBL producing E. coli, carbapenamase resistant Enterobactericea and fosfomycin resistant Enterobactericea strains. We have characterized these strains by phenotypic and molecular (whole genome sequencing too) techniques.
Our university is located in Hatay Province, that is on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea. So that, we can easily obtain a variety of water samples including waste water samples, Asi rivers and also Mediterranean Sea.
