Comparative DNA sequence analysis of 16S rRNA genes (rDNA) was undertaken to further our understanding of the make-up of bacterial communities in the rumen fluid of dairy cattle. Total DNA was extracted from the rumen fluid of 10 cattle fed haylage/corn silage/concentrate rations at two different times. Rumen samples were collected on two separate occasions from five cows each. In experiment 1, 31 cloned rDNA sequences were analysed. In experiment 2, DNA extractions were amplified using either… CONTINUE READING
