Identification of Marine Archaea

While once thought to be specialized bacteria, archaea are now known to be their own unique domain of life. They are also unicellular organisms with basic cellular structure. But a closer inspection reveals that many of their genes are more similar to complex life, such as animals. About 40% of the microorganisms living in the ocean are archaea. Some are large enough to be seen with the naked eye, although most are microscopic. Some are associated with corals, sponges and fish, while others, like Thaumarchaeota, are the predominant presence of tiny plankton floating in the water column. In recent years, the methods of molecular biology have been widely used in the study of microbial diversity, and it has been found that marine archaea widely live in various marine environments, not just in extreme environments. Marine archaea exist widely in various marine ecological environments and constitute the main components of prokaryotic cell populations in the marine environment. The identification of marine archaea has important theoretical and practical significance for understanding marine biological resources, protecting the marine ecological environment, and sustainable development and utilization of marine biological resources.

Identification of Marine Archaea

Our Services

Accurate identification of marine archaeal isolates is critical to research programs on marine archaeal biodiversity. Archaeal DNA sequencing methods, such as comparative sequencing of the 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene in bacteria, have proven to be the most accurate and reproducible methods for identifying unknown organisms. At CD BioSciences, we have extensive experience in providing rapid and accurate identification of marine archaea according to international standards.

Our Identification Methods of Marine Archaea

Identification of Marine Archaea
  • Gram Staining
    Gram stain is usually the first test required in archaea identification. The isolated colonies were examined for colony morphology, Gram response, and cell morphology during this procedure.
  • Genetic Identification
    Genetic identification uses DNA instead of traditional biochemical reactions. DNA is isolated from the culture, the 16S rDNA gene fragment is amplified by PCR, and the PCR amplicons are purified to remove contaminants. The unknown sequence is then sequenced and compared to the gene library. If no matches are found in the gene bank, public databases can be searched.

Sample Requirement

  • Experimental samples will not be returned, please back up by yourself.
  • Before sampling, a control group and an experimental group should be set up, and it is recommended to repeat more than 3 times for each group.
  • There is no limit to the variety of marine archaea sample.
  • For sample with special requirements or rare sample, please contact our staff for more information.
