Fingerprinting Viral Assemblages by Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis ( PFGE )

  title={Fingerprinting Viral Assemblages by Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis ( PFGE )},
  author={Grieg F Steward},
Viruses are the most abundant microorganisms in marine and freshwater environments and perhaps the most genetically diverse (Fuhrman and Suttle, 1993). Counting viruses in aquatic samples is now a routine matter, but assessing the diversity and dynamics within complex assemblages is still a challenge. DNA-based fingerprinting approaches, which rely on amplification of rRNA gene fragments by PCR, have facilitated analyses of bacterial community composition. These approaches have more restricted… CONTINUE READING
