This review describes the state of the art as well as the initial results of molecular methodologies used to study the ecology of the complex microflora of the human intestinal tract. The detection and identification of many of these organisms has largely been hampered by the incomplete knowledge of their culture conditions. Many of the molecular methodologies are rooted in the use of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) and its encoding genes to describe the relationship between the bacteria in such… CONTINUE READING
