Fig. 5

Diversity of bacterial GH1 family and fungal GH3 family β-glucosidase genes in the microbial communities present during natural (lanes A1–7) and inoculated (lanes B1–7) composting as shown by DGGE of PCR products amplified using the GH1F/GH1R-GC primer pair (a) or the GH3E/GH3ER-GC primer pair (b). a1–g1 and a3–g3 correspond to fourteen unique bands identified as the dominant species during the composting process. Lane numbers correspond to the sampling days. Letters indicate the different stages of the composting process: the mesophilic phase (M), the initial stage of thermophilic phase (T1), the later stage of the thermophilic phase (T2), and the cooling phase (C)
