Abstract:

Although some progress has been made in the development of genetic technology for , strains of the genus , and , the lack of efficient and reliable genetic exchange systems, a repertoire of mutants, or plasmids that express useful genetic markers has hampered the exploitation of these organisms for basic and applied research. Recent progress in the development of genetic techniques for NUB36 makes it possible to elucidate the molecular and genetic mechanisms of thermophily in this organism. The genetic characterization of the NUB36 genome is the first step in attaining this goal. The map was constructed using the linkages reported by Vallier and Welker. The genetic map of NUB36 may be similar to the 168 map; however, the identity of the genes in with the putative analogous genes of must be rigorously established by biochemical and molecular biological techniques.

Linear scale drawings representing the circular linkage map of the NUB36 chromosome. The scale of 360°, beginning with zero at the locus, is based on the map ( ). The genetic symbols used in this figure are defined in Table 1 . The map position of the loci was determined as described in Table 1 , footnote
