Abstract:

Dung beetles gut harbour various microorganisms providing benefits to the host as well as to the environment. Experiments were conducted to identify the bacterial diversity associated with gut of the adult dung beetles Onthophagus dama and Oniticellus cinctus through culture dependent as well as culture independent method. Eight culturable bacterial isolates were isolated from the gut of O. cinctus and ten isolates from O. dama. Metagenomics research has been developed over the past decade to elucidate the genomes of the uncultured microorganisms with an aim of understanding microbial ecology. Hence metagenomics studies were also done by traditional 16s rDNA cloning resulted in identification of uncultured Enterobacter sp., uncultured Aeromonas sp., uncultured Ralstonia sp., uncultured Dysgonomonas sp., uncultured beta proteobacterium form O. dama and uncultured Enterococcus sp., uncultured Firmicutes bacterium, uncultured Gilliamella sp., uncultured Peptoniphilaceae, uncultured Dysgonomonas sp., uncultured Burkholderiales bacterium, uncultured Porphyromonas sp., uncultured Gilliamella sp. from gut of O. cinctus which were reported for the first time.
