Bacteria and yeast frequently exist as populations capable of reaching extremely high cell densities. With conventional culturing techniques, however, cell proliferation and ultimate density are limited by depletion of nutrients and accumulation of metabolites in the medium. Here we describe design and operation of microfabricated elastomer chips, in which(More)
Based on 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetate (3,4-DHPA) dioxygenase amino acid sequence and DNA sequence data for homologous genes, two different oligonucleotides were designed. These were assayed to detect 3,4-DHPA related aromatic compound-degrading bacteria in soil samples by using the FISH method. Also, amplification by PCR using a set of ERIC primers was(More)
