The diversity of cultured actinomycete bacteria was compared between nearand offshore marine sediments. Strains were tested for the effects of seawater on growth and analyzed for 16S rRNA gene sequence diversity. In total, 623 strains representing 6 families in the order Actinomycetales were cultured. These strains were binned into 16 to 63 operational taxonomic units (OTUs) over a range of 97 to 100% sequence identity. The majority of the OTUs were closely related (>98% sequence identity) to… CONTINUE READING
