Abstract: The detection and analysis of nucleic acids extracted from microbial communities are the ultimate ways to determine the diversity and functional capability of microbial communities in the environments. However, it remains a challenge to use molecular techniques for unequivocal determination and quantification of microbial species composition and functional activities. Considerable efforts have been made to enhance the capability of molecular techniques. Here an update of the recent developments in molecular techniques for environmental microbiology is provided. © 2007 Federation of European Microbiological Societies.
