Samples of the sponge Haliclona simulans were collected from Irish waters and subjected to a culture-independent analysis to determine the microbial, polyketide synthase (PKS) and non-ribosomal peptide synthase (NRPS) diversity. 16S rRNA gene libraries were prepared from total sponge, bacterial enriched sponge and seawater samples. Eight phyla from the Bacteria were detected in the sponge by phylogenetic analyses of the 16S rRNA gene libraries. The most abundant phylum in the total sponge… CONTINUE READING
