Acknowledgement: Frank Oliver Glöckner, Anna Klindworth and the SILVA team are greatly acknowledged for contribution of primer details and calculation of coverage values. We are indebted to Safak Yilmaz and Daniel Noguera for calculation of the ΔG values. We greatly thank Todd DeSantis for his efforts to facilitate the access to Green Genes and acknowledge help of Christian Baranyi for statistical analysis and of Carmen Krammer, Manuela Hartmann, and Silvia Weber for database maintenance. We further thank Phil Hugenholtz for valuable comments and all users who contributed to probeBase by submitting probes.
 
ΔG values were calculated according to Yilmaz and Noguera (2006). Making all Parts of the 16S rRNA of Escherichia coli accessible in situ to single DNA oligonucleotides. Appl Environ Microbiol 72: 733-744.  Abstract.
