Genes encoding for proteins involved in biosynthesis of EPS and LPS. Relative abundances of genes encoding for proteins involved in biosynthesis of EPS and LPS in soils under two tillage managements, sampled at three different depths. Functional genes were assigned using hidden Markov models (HMMs) obtained from the TIGRFAMs and Pfam databases, and then sequences derived from the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) Orthology database. Significant differences in the amount of annotated reads were determined by a multilevel model (n = 3). Detected influence is symbolized for depth (*) or interaction of tillage and depth (#), respectively. Significance levels are represented by the amount of symbols: 1 – p < 0.05, 2 – p < 0.01, 3 – p < 0.001. Error bars show standard deviation
