Project: Identification of Bacillus species based on ARDRA (Amplied rDNA Restriction Analysis).

project duration
01-MAY-96 – 31-DEC-99
abstract
The ARDRA method allows to trace phylogenetic relationships of numerous bacterial strains in a fast and reliable way. Therefore, the technique can be applied to study complex and fragmentary characterised genera such as Bacillus. Combined with a polyphasic approach (FAME, SDS-PAGE of cellproteins, phenotypic analysis etc.) a taxonomic rearrangement of the genus Bacillus with a reliable species identification will emerge.
