Total base sequences of the 16S rRNA genes ofThiobacillus halophilus andThiobacillus aquaesulis show that these bacteria fall into the gamma- and beta-subdivisions, respectively of the Proteobacteria. The closest relative ofT. halophilus isThiobacillus hydrothermalis (with 98.7% similarity), and the closest relative ofT. aquaesulis isThiobacillus thioparus… CONTINUE READING
