Molecular identification of methanogenic archaea from sheep in Queensland, Australia reveal more uncultured novel archaea.

Abstract

Molecular diversity of rumen methanogens in sheep in Queensland, Australia was investigated using 16S rRNA gene libraries prepared from pooled rumen contents from nine merino sheep. A total of 78 clones were identified revealing 26 different sequences. Of these 26 sequences, eight sequences (15 clones) were 95-100% similar to cultivated methanogens… (More)
