Some examples of FISH images

Background FISH

The detection of whole-bacterial cells via the labelling of specific nucleic acids with fluorescently labelled oligonucleotide probes is called fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)

Background T(D)GGE

Temperature Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (TGGE)or Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (DGGE) is a molecular fingerprinting method that separates polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-generated DNA products.
