Marine water plus bacteria.

Purification of mtDNA

Isolation of total cellular DNA and subsequent separation of the A+T-rich fraction through CsCl/bisbenzimide centrifugation.


Random fragments were generated by nebulization, fractionated according to size (0.5-1.0 kbp; 1.0-3.0 kbp), and cloned in Bluescript KS+.
Performed by I. Plante (Unit).


Manual Sanger sequencing of single-stranded DNA, using 35S label. One custom primer was used for primer walking. Assembly was performed using the Staden BAP program.
Performed by D. St-Louis (Unit).
