Jessica used the Multi-Locus Sequence Typing method to sequence seven housekeeping genes of Shiga Toxin- Producing E.coli. She examined STEC from beef cattle pastures and pristine environments and find differences in genes that could show how they related, analyze if soil and water from these environments were reservoirs for E.coli and to examine if genes were moving between environments.
