Abstract : The map order of several genes on the chromosome of Staphlococcus aureus, S. epidermidis, S. muscae, and S. lactis has been determined, revealing few significant differences. In contrast, ratios of the total number of mutants induced in various genes have demonstrated appreciable differences among these four organisms. Such ratios may be a useful taxonomic tool for comparing deoxynucleotide structure of a functionally similar gene in various strains and species. (Author)
