Paper Abstract

The purpose of this talk is to initially provide an over-view of classical approaches used in bacterial identification, microbial forensics and biodetection. There will then be a brief discussion of bacterial biochemistry and taxonomy. This will be followed by recent examples of morphological (electron microscopy) and analytical chemical (mass spectrometry) bacterial characterization from our own research. This will lay down a framework for considerations in the use of spectroscopy (which is more developmental in nature) to provide equivalent or alternative information.
