Representative photographs of gel electrophoresis for 18S rRNA, cox3, and varATS primers using six saliva DNA samples (sample nos. 10–15). Sample nos. 10 and 11 were positive with 18S rRNA, since distinct bands of the correct size were visible; sample nos. 10 through 13 were positive with cox3; and sample nos. 10 and 11 were positive with varATS primers, but sample nos. 12–15 were difficult to score. The gel pictures show brighter and more distinct bands for cox3 than 18s rRNA and varATS
