When should a DDH experiment be mandatory in microbial taxonomy?
DNA–DNA hybridizations (DDH) play a key role in microbial species discrimination in cases when 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities are 97 % or higher. Using real-world 16S rRNA gene sequences and DDHExpand

The correlation between morphological and phylogenetic classification of myxobacteria.
In order to determine whether morphological criteria are suitable to affiliate myxobacterial strains to species, a phylogenetic analysis of 16S rDNAs was performed on 54 myxobacterial strains thatExpand

The phylogenetic position of Serratia, Buttiauxella and some other genera of the family Enterobacteriaceae.
The phylogenetic relationships of the type strains of 38 species from 15 genera of the family Enterobacteriaceae were investigated by comparative 16S rDNA analysis. Several sequences of strains fromExpand
