The objective of this work was to determine the shifts in the PCR-DGGE profiles of bacterial communities associated with the rhizosphere soil of ginseng at varying age levels. Differences in the dominance of intense DNA bands in the DGGE profile was observed over the age of the plants indicating the fluctuation in the microbial community structure. The bacterial orders of actinomycetales of Actinobacteria and Spingomonadales and Rhizobiales of α-Proteobacteria were predominant in the ginseng soil.
