The relationships among selected streptomycetes, nocardiae, and mycobacteria have been determined, based upon the base composition of their deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and upon the ability of their denatured DNA to anneal with single-stranded reference DNA. The streptomycetes constituted a homogeneous group whose DNA contained between 69 and 73 mole… CONTINUE READING
