7. Seal each blot in plastic wrap and expose to autoradiographic film for 1–3 d depending on the strength of the radioactive signal. 8. As long as the blot has not dried completely, it can be stripped of radioactive label and used again. These blots can be stored in plastic wrap at room temperature. 3 Analyzing the Repetitive DNA Probe Data For Southern blot hybridization, patterns generated by moderately repetitive sequences, two similarity coefficients (SABs) are useful, one based on the position and intensity of bands and one based on position alone.

The choice of the primers used is usually empirical. Ideally, for a given micro-organisms, a panel of 20–40 primers is tested on a limited collection (3 or 4 isolates) and the best primers, the ones giving polymorphic bands that can be analyzed with no ambiguity and are reproducible, are selected to analyze larger collections (see Notes 9–11). 22 Lockhart et al. 2. RAPD-PCR Amplification and Banding Pattern Visualization All the primers used should be analyzed after identical PCR protocols. It is usually easier to test different primers rather than to try to optimize the conditions for specific primers.
