Phylogenetically Diverse ureC Genes and Their Expression Suggest the Urea Utilization by Bacterial Symbionts in Marine Sponge Xestospongia testudinaria

Figure 5

Pie charts illustrating the bacterial community based on 16S rRNA gene libraries of sponge X. testudinaria.

Sequences in libraries were classified using the Classifier Tool provided by the Ribosomal Database Project. Hierarchical taxa assignment was based on RDP naive Bayesian rRNA Classifier. Percentage represented specific value between the number of clones in each taxon and the number of all clones in 16S rRNA gene library.
