Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The Laboratory for Infectious Disease and the Environment (LIDE) studies the occurrence, fate and transport, and health effects of human and agricultural zoonotic pathogens in the environment. The LIDE is an interagency collaborative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service that conducts research to inform decision makers and advance scientific knowledge. The LIDE collaborates with public agencies and academic researchers in partnerships and works cooperatively or independently on all aspects of the research process. The LIDE's laboratory capabilities include quantitative polymerase chain reaction and pathogen culture.
