Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis – a Tool for Plant Protection Research

  title={Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis – a Tool for Plant Protection Research},
  author={Maureen O’Callaghan and Emily M Gerard and Gabriele Heilig and Hao Zhang and Trevor Anthony Jackson and Travis R. Glare},
Analysis of microbial communities associated with plants, insects and soil has been a significant challenge for plant protection researchers, because of the lack of techniques with which to access these populations. A new molecular community profiling technique, 16S rRNA gene-based PCR followed by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), has been used to analyse microbial communities in a number of environments and has many potential uses in plant protection research. The technique is… CONTINUE READING
