Verrucomicrobia div. nov., a new division of the Bacteria containing three new species of Prosthecobacter
Four strains of nonmotile, prosthecate bacteria were isolated in the 1970s and assigned to the genus Prosthecobacter. These strains were compared genotypically by DNA/DNA reassociation and 16S rDNAExpand
