The members of the Deinococcus-Thermus phylum, which include many species that are resistant to extreme radiation, as well as several thermophiles, have been recognized solely on the basis of their branching patterns in 16S rRNA and other phylogenetic trees. No biochemical or physiological characteristic is currently known that is unique to this group of species. To identify genes/proteins that are exclusive of this group of species, systematic protein basic local alignment tool (Blastp… CONTINUE READING
