In the last few years many attempts have been made to differentiate more than 20 Bifidobacterium species. It has been recognized that identification of bifidobacterial species is problematic because of phenetic and genetic heterogeneities. In order to contribute to our understanding of Bifidobacterium taxonomy, we studied Bifidobacterium phylogeny by performing both 16S rRNA and 16S to 23S (16S-23S) internally transcribed spacer (ITS) sequence analyses. In this study, we determined 16S rRNA… CONTINUE READING
