Fragmentation analysis of genomic DNA. Microcapillary electrophoresis patterns of genomic DNA extracted from fecal samples collected by 4 individuals (#1, #2, #3, #4) and stored in the following conditions: immediately frozen at −20°C (F); immediately frozen and then unfrozen during 1 h and 3 h (UF1h, UF3h); kept at room temperature during 3 h, 24 h and 2 weeks (RT3h, RT24h, RT2w). The equivalent to 1 mg of fecal material is loaded on each lane. A DNA fragment size (base pair) ladder was loaded in the left most lanes.
