Nucleotide Sequences of Sections of 16S Ribosomal RNA

Article metrics


Three large sections of 16S RNA, obtained by partial enzymatic hydrolysis, and together representing nearly one-fifth of the molecule, have been analysed. Knowledge of their primary structure allows features of the secondary structure to be envisaged.
