The use of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) as molecular marker to identify microbial populations is now routinely used in microbial ecology. One of the strategies herein is cloning of PCR products obtained from environmental DNA to explore the diversity of microbial communities without the need of cultivation. Although successful, this approach is for practical reasons not suited to study the complex dynamics which microbial communities can undergo by diel or seasonal fluctuations or after environmental… CONTINUE READING
