The prokaryotic phylogenetic diversity was determined for a sample associated with an in situ growth chamber deployed for 5 days on a Mid-Atlantic Ridge hydrothermal vent (23 degrees 22'N, 44 degrees 57'W). The DNA was extracted from the sample and the 16S rDNA amplified by PCR. No Archaea were detected in the sample. Eighty-seven clones containing bacterial 16S rDNA inserts were selected. Based on restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis, 47 clones were unique, however, based on… CONTINUE READING
