|Abstract: ||To distinguish Rhodotorula sp., from other
microorganisms that produce the same type of alterations on CH materials, proper identification methods must be applied.
RNA-fluorescence and in situ hybridization (RNA-FISH) has the potential to specifically identify the target microorganism
of interest in complex microbial communities (it is based on hybridization of fluorescently-labeled oligonucleotide probes
targeting to specific regions of the ribosomal RNA). Thus, the aim of this study was to design a novel genus specific RNAFISH probe against Rhodotorula sp., and to evaluate its specificity and performance both in silico and experimentally. This
will contribute for facilitating Rhodotorula sp., identification in degraded CH materials by RNA-FISH.|
