Figure 5. Prior to alignment of two sets of 2-banders, lanes are difficult to cluster (lanes a-d are from the distributions in Figure 4a and b). Subsequent to alignment, lanes are much easier to cluster (lanes a' and b' are specific examples from the distributions in Figure 4e and ff; lanes c' and d' likewise correspond to Figure 4g and h). Fragment lengths are given in kilobasepairs (kb).
