Abstract/Summary

Molecular methods to detect organisms in the natural environment can be divided into whole cell and cell free formats. Whole cell methods are generally limited by the number of fluorochromes that can be detected, whereas cell free formats offer more possibilities for multiple species detection and multiple methods of detection. This mini review addresses the major tools applied in environmental studies using cell free methods. The methods reviewed include microarrays, biosensors, quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR), and next generation sequencing (NGS).
