- PCR-based detection of non-indigenous microorganisms in 'pristine' environmentsGillian C Baker
Department of Biotechnology, University of the Western Cape, Private Bag X17, Bellville, Cape Town, South Africa
J Microbiol Methods 53:157-64. 2003..We conclude that despite these limitations, PCR and related technologies offer enormous scope for assessment of both natural and non-indigenous microbial distributions...
- 16 S rDNA primers and the unbiased assessment of thermophile diversityG C Baker
Advanced Research Centre for Applied Microbiology, University of the Western Cape, Private Bag X17, Bellville 7535, Cape Town, South Africa
Biochem Soc Trans 32:218-21. 2004..Here we present the application of these new primers for preparation of 16 S libraries from thermophile communities...
- Nanoarchaeal 16S rRNA gene sequences are widely dispersed in hyperthermophilic and mesophilic halophilic environmentsAna Casanueva
Department of Biotechnology, Institute for Microbial Biotechnology and Metagenomics, University of the Western Cape, Private Bag X17, Bellville, 7535, South Africa
Extremophiles 12:651-6. 2008..These results suggest that nanoarchaeotes are not strictly hyperthermophilic organisms, are not restricted to hyperthermophilic hosts and may be found in a large range of environmental conditions...
- Bacterial diversity in the rhizosphere of Proteaceae speciesWilliam H L Stafford
Advanced Research Centre for Applied Microbiology, Department of Biotechnology, University of the Western Cape, Bellville 7535, Cape Town, South Africa
Environ Microbiol 7:1755-68. 2005..truncatulum rhizosphere. Archaea-specific rDNA PCR, DGGE and DNA sequencing revealed that Crenarcheote genospecies were excluded from the plant rhizosphere soil and only present in non-rhizosphere soil...
