Molecular characterization of the microbial community in hydrogenetic ferromanganese crusts of the Takuyo-Daigo Seamount, northwest Pacific.


The abundance and phylogenetic diversity of the microbial community in the hydrogenetic ferromanganese crust, sandy sediment and overlying seawater were investigated using a culture-independent molecular analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene. These samples were carefully collected from the Takuyo-Daigo Seamount, located in the northwest Pacific Ocean, by a… (More)
