I need to get some idea of the amount of variation in 16S rRNA sequences of
strains identified as Rhodopseudomonas palustris, and Rhodocyclus tenuis.
Obviously, I have the sequences which are in the genbank database, but there
are only a few near-complete sequences, some very short partial sequences,
and several which contain long strings of Ns.
So... if anyone out there happens to have a 16S sequence from either of these
organisms which they didn't submit to a database, I'd be grateful if they
could forward it to me.
Or if you happen to have a palustris or tenuis-like organism sitting on your
shelves, and some primers going to waste... :)
Many thanks for any help,
