Abstract Characterization of patterns of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) homology with restriction digests of Bacillus subtilis 168 chromosomal DNA and with cloned DNA sequences has resulted in the construction of a physical map of the rRNA gene sets. There are two types of gene sets which differ in the size of "spacer" DNA sequences separating the 16S and 23S rRNA determinants. It was estimated that there are ten rRNA gene sets on the B. subtilis chromosome.
