Abstract

Small-subunit rRNAs from 24 gram-negative methylotrophic bacteria have been sequenced. A phylogenetic tree was constructed on the basis of sequence similarities by using a weighted least-mean-square difference method. The methylotrophs were separated into coherent clusters in which bacteria in each group shared physiological characteristics.
