Table 2 Score based on amplified fragments in the set of samples archived for 85 years

From: Human DNA decays faster with time than viral dsDNA: an analysis on HPV16 using pathology archive samples spanning 85 years

  No. of samples amplified on human tubulin-β gene
Negative Positive (65 bp) Positive (149 bp) Total
No. of samples amplified on HPV16 L1 gene
 Negative 0 3 0 3

 Positive (134 bp) 0 10 2 12
 Total 2 15 2 19
  1. bp: base pairs
  2. All samples named “149 bp” were also positive for both 65 bp and 149 bp amplicons
  3. All samples named “134 bp” were also positive for both 69 bp and 134 bp amplicons
