Summary: sp. strain C-125 has been chosen as a model alkalophilic bacterium to understand how adaptation to growth at high pH is achieved. To aid genetic analysis, we have started characterization of its genome. By using the two infrequently-cutting restriction endonucleases, I and 8387I, in conjunction with pulsed-field electrophoretic techniques, the size of the genome was found to be 3.7 Mb. Southern blot analysis of single, double and partial digests of sp. strain C-125 DNA, using I-linking clones, gene probes and purified sp. strain C-125 restriction fragments, allowed a putative chromosome map to be constructed.
