DGGE of 16S rDNA amplicons in total DNA extracts from six pristine (P) and nearby six oil-polluted (O) soil samples collected from the Kuwaiti desert. (a) DGGE gel, the 16S rDNA band numbers and patterns varied, not only according to the sampling sites, but also to whether the sample was pristine or oil-polluted. The bands were further processed as described in the legend to Figure 1, and the results are summarized in Table 2. (b) Cluster analysis of DGGE-results using Euclidean distances.
