Microorganisms are of fundamental importance to global biogeochemical cycling, yet aspects of their ecology are poorly understood. Within the present methods used to study microbial ecology are limitations with regards to sensitivity, applicability and automation. This study aimed to investigate the potential application of novel nucleic acid probes (molecular beacons and locked nucleic acid probes) in microbial ecology.
