    Abstract

    Quantitative analysis of the target microorganism in microbial communities is important for the assessment of bacterial activity in environment. Here we present a method of a combination of fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) method and live/dead staining which allows in situ identification and analysis of physiological status of specific bacteria.
