Table 1 Analysis of mean relative abundance of bands corresponding to Bti from DGGE profiles. The presence of band shows the number of individuals with the band on their profile over the total number of individuals analyzed (percentage in parenthesis). Relative intensity is the mean (± SD) of the intensities of Bti band divided by the total intensity of all bands analyzed from each individual. Higher band and lower band of Bti correspond to 312 bp and 288 bp fragments, respectively, that were both identified as Bti by sequencing (Additional file 1: Figure S1)
