Genetic relatedness among six bacterial strains currently classified as vibrios was determined by biochemical tests, deoxyribonucleic acid base composition analysis, and the detection of nucleic acid homology by the membrane filter method. Varying degrees of genetic homology existed among vibrios having similar base compositions. The bovine isolate which had a substantially different per cent guanine plus cytosine content was shown to be genetically different from the remaining vibrio strains… CONTINUE READING
