  • Anthropogenic activity has generated a negative impact on aquatic environments and on the organisms that live in them. Therefore, the water quality of the samples taken in the four tributaries of the Bogotá River will be determined by implementing traditional strategies with physicochemical and microbiological analyses. Likewise, the composition of the microbial communities present were described using metagenomic analysis and with these results the presence of molecular markers of interest. Our results showed how the bacterial community dominates in the samples, in addition, the description of the antibiotic resistance markers and virulence factors gives an approximation to how the water is serving as a medium for its propagation. Finally, this study allows generating relevant information on the current status of the sampled points and marking a starting point to continue with future research.
