Abstract

SUMMARY: The genome size of an unclassified species, isolated from a patient with Crohn’s disease, was determined by measurement of DNA renaturation kinetics as 3·1 × 10 Da. The percentage of DNA homology of this organism to DNA of related mycobacteria was evaluated by measurement of DNA renaturation with heterologous DNA. These studies supported the classification of this organism as but failed to distinguish between and organisms of the groups.
