Made up of all phyla or divisions that are related to each other
In bacteria, all cells with similar characteristic in common.
in eukaryotes, closely related organisms that are capable of breeding among themselves.
A group of similar orders in eukaryotic cells.
A serological test for bacterial identification.
Slide agglutination test
Makes use of bacterial viruses to identify bacteria
A sequence of questions with only two possible answers.
Determines the taxonomic relationship of bacteria by allowing complementary strands of DNA from different organisms to reassembles as a complementary pair.
Nucleic acid hybridization
Maps of branching lines that show evolutionary relationships
Used to discover or identify microbes that cannot be cultivated.
Fluorescent in situ hybridization
A technique that may be able to suggest evolutionary relationships among bacteria based on the determination of the base composition of the DNA.
G + C ratio
A system we use for naming biological organism with two names
The taxonomic categories into which organisms are arranged that reflect degrees of relatedness among them.
The science of classification
Plural of genus
Microbes that causes anthrax
Prokaryotes without peptidoglycan in cell walls.
Identifies by fatty-acid profile
A blotting test that identifies nucleic acids.
A serological test that is fast and can be read by computer scanners.
Can be used to discover microbes in the environment that cannot be cultivated; hybridizes rRNA.
