Genomic Organization Studies in Halobacteria Using Pulse Field Gel Electrophoresis
The interest of geneticists has been focused on Halobacteria due to their archaebacterial nature and genetic instability. Using pulsed field gel electrophoresis we have obtained information about the genome size, number of chromosomes, their topology, the comparative number of rRNA genes, the comparison of restriction maps and the type of extrachromosomal genetic information of halobacterial species belonging to the main taxonomic groups.
