Personal profile

Research interests

Anna Padovan is a research fellow in the Research Institute of the Environment and Livelihoods. Anna has worked in molecular microbiology for 30 years, with the last 10 years in environmental microbiology. She has used next generation sequencing to study the microbiome of biota in Darwin Harbour in relation to anthropogenic inputs. More recently, she completed a report on the enumeration of faecal indicators and prevalence of pathogens in shellfish, targeting Salmonella, Vibrio parahaemolyticus  and V. vulnificus using molecular techniques. Anna has commenced a project on algal toxins in shellfish and cyanotoxins from wastewater including optimizing toxin gene detection by PCR.
