The Office of Water Quality sponsored a 2-day meeting March 13-14, 2001, at the USGS headquarters in Reston, Virginia. Invited attendees were USGS scientists who currently use a variety of molecular methods to address microbiological issues in USGS research and assessment programs. The goal of the meeting was to hold a wide-ranging discussion on current USGS capabilities in molecular microbiology and to explore ways of expanding the use of those technologies to answer questions in USGS science. Another objective of the meeting was to develop guidance for USGS leadership on the need for, and most efficient implementation of, methods in molecular microbiology to address hydrologic, geologic or biological resource assessment and research over the next 5 years.
