By using cultivation-independent techniques, community changes of methane-oxidizing bacteria (MOB) in rice bulk soils were investigated under field conditions in a Japanese rice field. The representative soil samples were collected during the typical rice growing season and nonrice growing period all year round. Statistical characterization of denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) community patterns of MOB pmoA/amoA functional gene fragments showed that MOB community structures in the… CONTINUE READING
