This is a map of all of the ESRM samples, with each sample location represented by a pin symbol that describes the results of the analysis. A description of each pin symbol is shown below the map. You can click on a pin to view a popup that describes the sample in more detail. Clicking on the sample title in the popup displays a page with even further details about the sample.
You can filter the map according to whether the samples were positive for Paraoxon, Methyl Parathion or whether the sample was Cataloged. When a sample is cataloged that means that it has been registered in a third party database (e.g., NCBI).
Farm run-off area
Collected next to an old cattle dipping chute
Soil sample collected from Ballester's Fishing Area in Morgan's Point, Texas. Results are negative for OP hyldrolysis.
Sample was taken from a barren area by the water. The day was hot and it had not rained in a couple of days so the sample was dry.
This sample was collected near the Brazos River. The bacteria isolated was found to tolerate Paraoxon but unable to hydrolyze it.
Soil taken from 12 inches below frozen surface. Sample analyzed by Abigail Miller.
Soil collected from surface. Sample analyzed by Kara Morrison
Soil collected from 12 inches beneath the frozen surface. Sample analyzed by Kevin Schutt.
Soil collected from 12 inches below frozen surface. Sample analyzed by Jiacheng Wu and Kevin Schutt.
Soil collected from 12 inches below the frozen surface. Sample analyzed by Abigail Miller and Zachary Ward.
Soil collected from 12 inches below the frozen surface. Sample analyzed by Kara Morrison.
Sample taken from 12 inches below the frozen surface. Soil analyzed by Ben Hall and Breanna Laber.
Soil sample taken from 12 inches below the frozen surface. Sample analyzed by Zachary Ward.
Soil taken from 12 inches below the frozen surface. Analyzed by Abigail Miller and Kara Morrison.
The soil sample was collected from a retention basin that flooded during Hurricane Harvey.
PX MP negative due to only having growth but not hollows around it. sample cannot break down OP
The sample was collected in the Stude Park surrounded by a lot of plants.
The presence of growth on my Glycerol Minimal Media agar plate indicates I have bacterial strains that are capable of tolerating the pesticide, Paraoxon. I also have a few colonies with halos which are an indication of hydrolysis, meaning that I also have a strain that might be capable of degrading OP compounds.
Inoculation of CSM Px tube was plated on minimal media agar plate. The CSM Px tube had the most prevalent yellow coloration, indicating it may be able to degrade organophosphorus compounds; This is why CSM Px was chosen to be plated.
Found soil along a stream in Crighton Park in Conroe, Texas.
Sample collected near Stafford
Collected 8/29/2018, 7:30 AM. Soil sample was collected nearby bayou and construction site by a biking trail. Soil sample shows negative for Paraoxon under GGM- PX assay.
Located near the edge of Brays Bayou, sample was collected around 8:35 on the morning of the 10th of September, 2018.
Located by the fountain
Sample collected from: Northwest Houston from the soil near the outskirts of a retention pond.
Coordinates 29.988894, -95.475892
Colonies were tolerant when grown in PX GMM Plate, but showed no sign of OP degradation.
Sample was collected from a creek bed at a residential park.
