As part of our research to determine phylogenetic relationships of organisms within the phytobacterial species Xanthomonas campestris, we have examined the use of the random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique. The objective of this aspect of our research was to determine if a valid cladistic character analysis could be carried out by direct comparison of RAPD products separated on ethidium bromide-stained agarose gels. RAPD products were amplified from 47 Xanthomonas campestris DNA… CONTINUE READING
