Assessment of the impact of data processing on dT-RFLP profiles, and comparison with eT-RFLP profiles. Richness and Shannon′s H′ diversity indices were calculated in a way to quantify the impact of the pyrosequencing data processing parameters on the resulting dT-RFLP profiles. Two examples are given for samples pyrosequenced with the HighRA (GRW01) and LowRA methods (GRW07).
