Diversity and metabolic abilities of Antarctic bacteria - DGGE fingerprinting of bacteria
Entry ID: ASAC_2341_DGGE

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Bacterial community structures in soils collected from eight sites around Casey Station, Antarctica, were investigated using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of amplified 16S rRNA gene fragments. Higher bacterial diversity was found in soils from protected or relatively low human-impacted sites in comparison to highly impacted sites. However, the highest diversity was detected in ...

ISO Topic Category
Quality The DGGE studies were to compare bacterial diversity between sites, based on band patterns. The 16S DNA fragments used were very short, about 500 bp only. The sequence of individual bands were not sufficient to identify the bacteria. Hence, there are no accession numbers.
Access Constraints There are no data from this part of the project - see the quality field for further information.
