A bacteria library was constructed from the caecum of a rabbit maintained under standard conditions. The complete gene 16S rRNA gene was sequenced. The 228 clones obtained were distributed in 70 operational taxonomic units (OTUs). The large majority of the OTUs were composed of one or two clones and seven OTUs contained half of the sequences.

Oligonucleotide sets are widely used in molecular biology to target a group of nucleic acid sequences using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-based technologies. Currently, the global matching efficiency of an oligonucleotide set is considered to be equal to the lower matching efficiency calculated for each oligonucleotide. However, sequences matching the(More)
The effects of selection for growth rate on weights and qualitative carcass and muscle traits were assessed by comparing two lines selected for live body weight at 63 days of age and a cryopreserved control population raised contemporaneously with generation 5 selected rabbits. The animals were divergently selected for five generations for either a high (H(More)
