Abstract

The degree of binding was determined between deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) preparations from nocardias and uracil-labeled DNA from four reference strains of . The strains fell into three DNA homology groups, one of which contained the type strain of ATCC 3318. The relevance of the genetic data to the structure of the taxon is discussed. The nucleotide composition of the DNA preparations from the strains fell between 64 and 68 mol% guanine plus cytosine.
