Identification of microorganisms by conventional methods requires the isolation of pure cultures followed by laborious characterization experiments. These procedures are therefore inadequate for study of the biodiversity of a natural or engineered ecosystem. A new set of molecular techniques developed during the 1990s revolutionized microbial ecology research. Among these techniques, cloning and the creation of a gene library, denaturant gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) and fluorescent in… CONTINUE READING
