Biological assessment is an integral part of water and sediment quality assessment in Australia (ANZECC 2000 guidelines) however there is no early warning rapid biological assessment (RBA) for sediment toxicity. We will develop RBA for contaminated sediment using metal resistant bacteria. We will design DNA probes to detect these metal resistant bacteria in envrionmental samples and develop a framework applicable wherever sediment biologial assessment is required.
