Phylogenetic analyses of ribosomal RNA gene sequences (rDNAs) retrieved from an Australian desert soil sample (Sturt National Park) revealed the presence of a number of clones which branched deeply from the high GC Gram-positive division line of descent. The most abundant group of these clones were related to Rubrobacter. An oligonucleotide probe was designed to have broad specificity to Rubrobacter and relatives. This probe was used to interrogate eight rDNA libraries representing four… CONTINUE READING
