Abstract

Specific Tn5 sequences inserted in the genome of Enterobacter agglomerans were detected in EcoRI digested DNA directly recovered from soil 70 d after its inoculation with the bacteria, when these were no longer culturable on agar medium. A new method of DNA extraction from soil was used. No amplification of DNA sequences by PCR was needed.
