BACKGROUND Classifying bacteria into species is problematic. Most microbiologists consider species to be groups of isolates that share some arbitrary degree of relatedness of biochemical or molecular (such as DNA sequence) features and that, ideally, are clearly delineated from all other groups of isolates. The main problem in applying to bacteria a biological concept of species based on the ability or inability of their genes to recombine, is that recombination appears to be rare in bacteria… CONTINUE READING
