Abstract:
We compared the community structure of methanogens in Murrah breed of buffaloes of four states of north India using 16S rRNA gene clone library method. The results revealed the dominance of methanogens related to Methanobrevibacter in three states, while Methanomicrobium-related methanogens were abundant in one state.
