Figure 3.

Bar Graph showing the relative distribution of the bacterial OTUs detected before and after frozen storage of NP swabs at -70°C amongst male and female infants by 16S rRNA-based T-RFLP. Partial 16S rRNA gene sequences from infant nasopharyngeal clone libraries were BLASTED to identify the microbes (>97% sequence similarity) and in silico T-RFLP analysis was used to match them to the OTUs.
