Abstract 2013: We performed a comparative analysis of bacterial diversity in a saline and soda lake by using a novel cultivation method termed the filter plate microbial trap method (FPMT), conventional techniques and DGGE. The new method allowed for cultivation of representatives of seven bacterial phyla, including seven novel species. This compares favorably to cultivation of representatives of four phyla and only one novel species by standard approaches. Neither culture collection matched the community composition revealed by DGGE, but FPMT method produced a more representative collection of strains. We conclude that FPMT is powerful device for improving bacterial culturability and narrowing the gap between microbial diversity in nature and cultivable microorganisms.
