Reviews

  • A Good Overview (though slightly back-dated): Quantitative assessment of worldwide contamination of air, water and soil by trace metals [1]
  • A summary of Pollutants from the EPA [2]

Cadmium

  • MCL: 5 ppb
  • MCLG: 5 ppb
  • Known Carcinogen
  • Cadmium Contamination Sites

  • contains sequence for ZntR/CadR and PzntA/PcadA
    • Semmie's article on CadC linked with GFP [4]

Mercury

  • MCL: 2 ppb
  • MCLG: 2 ppb
  • 20 ppb makes the fish mercury buildup significant
  • Polluted sites
    • Onondaga lake [5] [6] [7]
    • Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge [8]
  • Detection (to assess our system):
  • Promoter
