Members of the highly diverse bacterial phylum Verrucomicrobia are globally distributed in various terrestrial and aquatic habitats. They are key players in soils, but little is known about their role in aquatic systems. Here, we report on the design and evaluation of a 16S rRNA-targeted probe set for the identification of Verrucomicrobia and of clades within this phylum. Subsequently, the probe set was applied to a study concerning the seasonal abundance of Verrucomicrobia in waters of the… CONTINUE READING
