Figure S1. Comparison of two T-RFLP patterns of DdeI digestion products of the Asclepias viridis Sample 1 from Site 2 collected on June 16th, 2010, scanned on Aug 19th, 2010 (above) and Aug 30th 2010 (below). The T-RFLP patterns of the same sample scanned in different experiments were indistinguishable, indicating that the T-RFLP is highly reproducible.
