To determine whether metagenomic libraries sample adequately the dominant bacteria in aquatic environments, we examined the phylogenetic make-up of a large insert metagenomic library constructed with bacterial DNA from the Delaware River, a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) library of 16S rRNA genes, and community structure determined by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). The composition of the libraries and community structure determined by FISH differed for the major bacterial groups in… CONTINUE READING
