  • Separate DNA fragments of the same length but with different sequences
  • Separation is based on the melting behavior of double-stranded DNA
  • Melting behavior depends on base-pair composition of the DNA

  • Community complexity
  • Identify community members by sequencing
  • Distribution of microbial populations inhabiting different environments (e.g. temperatures)
  • Monitor community changes
