CHAPTER 3 Extraction and Analysis of Microbial Community Nucleic Acids from Environmental Matrices Jan Dirk van Elsas, Kornelia Smalla, Christoph C. 1. Introduction E nvironmental monitoring on the basis of nucleic acids is increasingly being recognized as an extremely powerful approach, since organisms or genes can be directly assessed, even without prior cultivation. Hence, targets present in unculturable, poorly-culturable or as yet uncultured organisms, which would escape detection when using traditional cultivation-based approaches, are assessable.
