Abstract

The genome sizes of 33 strains of budding bacteria were determined by deoxyribonucleic acid renaturation kinetics. The values ranged from 1.67 × 10 to 4.43 × 10 for strains representing the following genera: (seven strains; , 2.08 × 10 to 2.73 × 10), (six strains; , 1.67 × 10 to 2.13 × 10), (five strains; , 2.81 × 10 to 3.43 × 10), genus T (two strains; , 2.32 × 10 to 2.46 × 10), genus D (one strain; , 1.73 × 10), genus F (one strain; , 2.03 × 10), (seven strains; , 2.73 × 10 to 4.43 × 10), and (four strains; , 2.67 × 10 to 3.65 × 10). The taxa designated genus T, genus D, and genus F represented new budding bacteria which will be formally described elsewhere. The genome size ranges of spp., spp., and spp. were relatively small compared with those of spp. and spp. The plotting of genome sizes against deoxyribonucleic acid base compositions demonstrated distinct cluster areas, some of which allowed clear separation of the genera studied.
