Abstract

The taxonomic studies on the genus performed in the Department of Bacteriology of the University of California at Berkeley played a significant rôle in the development of modern prokaryote taxonomy, which started in the 1960s. This impact was due to a revival of the method of den Dooren de Jong for the nutritional analysis of chemoorganotrophic organisms and, mostly, to the introduction of the determination of rRNA as a method of taxonomic analysis. While the introduction of the nutritional studies facilitated the characterization of and other chemoorganotrophs, the applicability of the rRNA studies extended to all prokaryotes.
