Global survey of diversity among environmental saltwater Bacteriovoracaceae.

Halophilic Bacteriovorax (Bx), formerly known as the marine Bdellovibrio, are Gram-negative, predatory bacteria found in saltwater systems. To assess their genetic diversity and geographical occurrence, the small subunit rRNA (ssu-rRNA) gene sequences were analysed from 111 marine, salt lake and estuarine isolates recovered from 27 locations around the… CONTINUE READING
