Genetic diversity analysis of Rhodothermus reflects geographical origin of the isolates


The genetic diversity and relationships of 81 Rhodothermus isolates from different geothermal environments in Iceland were examined by analysis of electrophoretically demonstrable allelic variation of 13 genes encoding enzymes. All the enzymes were polymorphic. A total of 71 distinctive multilocus genotypes (electrophoretic types, ETs) were identified. The… (More)
