T-RFLP (terminal RFLP) Terminal fragment is ±uorescently tagged by PCR Uses one labeled primer Can predict sizes based on database Sunday, January 24, 2010

Whole cell rRNA-targeted FISH (fuorescence in situ hybridization) • “phylogenetic stain” • ID/count microbes • assess spatial relationships • monitor pop. dynamics (how numbers change/time) • learn cell morphology • “phylotype” vs. phenotype red=FISH, blue=DNA (total) * Sunday, January 24, 2010

Variable regions tend to make good species-specifc probes 5’FITC-gattcgrnat 3’ 3’ ctaagcynta 5’ FITC=fluorescent tag (emits green) * Sunday, January 24, 2010
Background image of page 6
A recipe for designing probes Requires a knowledge of phylogenetic relationships and a sequence database (e.g., GenBank) Probes are short 18-35mer oligonucleotides (synthetic DNA), tagged at 5’ terminus with Fuorescent group (±ITC, Cy3, etc.) Speci²city is maximized by adjusting number/placement of mismatches “species”-level generally easier to design than higher phylogenetic levels use rRNA secondary structures * Sunday, January 24, 2010
