The diversity and distribution of a bacterial community from Coffee Pots Hot Spring, a thermal spring in Yellowstone National Park with a temperature range of 39.3 to 74.1 degrees C and pH range of 5.75 to 6.91, were investigated by sequencing cloned PCR products and quantitative PCR (qPCR) of 16S rRNA and metabolic genes. The spring was inhabited by three Aquificae genera--Thermocrinis, Hydrogenobaculum, and Sulfurihydrogenibium--and members of the Alpha-, Beta-, and Gammaproteobacteria… CONTINUE READING
