In the PhD thesis of Johanna Maukonen, molecular tools were developed for sensitive and highly specific characterization of the human predominant fecal and salivary microbiota. DNA- and rRNA-based denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis methods (DGGE) were developed for Eubacterium rectale – Blautia coccoides group (Erec), rRNA-based DGGE method for predominant bacteria, and DNA-based DGGE methods for Clostridium leptum group (Clept) and Bacteroides spp.
