Abstract
A combination of polymerase chain reaction-assisted rRNA sequence retrieval and fluorescent oligonucleotide probing was used to identify in situ a hitherto unculturable, big, magnetotactic, rod-shaped organism in freshwater sediment samples collected from Lake Chiemsee. Tentatively named “Magnetobacterium bavaricum,” this bacterium is evolutionarily distant from all other phylogenetically characterized magnetotactic bacteria and contains unusually high number
