Variability of PCR efficiency within matrixes. PCR efficiencies for soybean (A) and maize (B) matrixes were determined for the plant specific genes, lectin and invertase, respectively. The dispersions of PCR efficiencies is shown in a histogram with PCR efficiency on the x axis and number of samples on the y axis. For a scaled view and detection of outliers, boxplots of efficiency data for each matrix are presented below each histogram.
