Subtraction hybridization for the production of high specificity DNA probes
Microbes can be exploited in the environment to improve plant yields by symbiotic nitrogen fixation or as biological control agents. It is desirable to monitor the fate of released microorganisms in order to evaluate their survival, the success of inoculation, or to study their effect on other microorganisms. In epidemiological and ecological studies also, it is important to identify species and strains of organisms accurately.
