Higher order taxonomic assignments (family level and above) in the phylum Actinobacteria are currently based only on 16S-rRNA gene sequence analyses. Additional molecular markers need to be identified to increase the number of reference points for defining actinobacterial families and other higher taxa. Furthermore, since most novel actinobacterial taxa are defined at the level of species and genera, it is necessary to define molecular signatures at the genus level to enhance the robustness of… CONTINUE READING
