Table 1: Local alignment results for fluoroacetate-degrading bacterial isolates 16S rRNA sequences. Sequences were compared to those deposited at the National Center for Biotechnology Information using the regular BlastN algorithm available at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/BLAST. Organisms with sequences similar to those of isolates ECPB08 (JQ345720) and ECPB09 (JQ345721) are listed on the second column. Values for the parameters total score, query coverage, and maximum identity are displayed in columns 3 to 5. GenBank access codes are displayed in parentheses.
