    • 16 S rDNA primers and the unbiased assessment of thermophile diversity 

      Baker, Gillian; Cowan, Donald A. (Portland Press, 2004)
      Our understanding of thermophile diversity is based predominantly on PCR studies of community DNA. ‘Universal’ and domain-specific rRNA gene PCR primers have historically been used for the assessment of microbial diversity ...
    • High 16S rDNA bacterial diversity in glacial meltwater lake sediment, Bratina Island, Antarctica 

      Sjoling, Sara; Cowan, Donald A. (Springer Verlag, 2003)
      The microbial diversity in maritime meltwater pond sediments from Bratina Island, Ross Sea, Antarctica was investigated by 16S rDNA-dependent molecular phylogeny. Investigations of the vertical distribution, phylogenetic ...
    • Review and re-analysis of domain-specific 16S primers 

      Baker, Gillian; Smith, Jacques J.; Cowan, Donald A. (Elsevier, 2003)
      The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) has facilitated the detection of unculturable microorganisms in virtually any environmental source and has thus been used extensively in the assessment of environmental microbial diversity. ...
