The base composition of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) prepared from four Betabacterium strains and four Streptobacterium strains was determined. Per cent GC values (guanine + cytosine/total bases) of the DNA were evaluated from the "melting-temperatures" (Tm) of the nucleic acids. For the Betabacterium strains, these values ranged from 44 to 51.5% GC, and those for the Streptobacterium strains ranged from 43 to 47.5% GC. The taxonomic division into these two subgenera is not, therefore, supported by these findings.
