The objectives of the research are to gain an understanding of the ecology, systematics, and molecular genetics of marine bacteria, crucial to the development of marine biotechnology and its applications. Sub-projects are to i clone and sequence ecologically relevant genes from members of the genus Vibrio, including deep-sea species, ii examine, by means of DNA homology, relatedness between members of the genus Vibrio iii characterize structure-function relationships between 5S rRNA and the 50S ribosomal subunit to elucidate the role of 5S rRNAs and iv clone and sequence genes from deep-sea bacteria.
