Data from: Benchmarking DNA metabarcoding for biodiversity-based monitoring and assessment

Eva Aylagas, Angel Borja, Xabier Irigoien & Naiara Rodriguez-Ezpeleta
Characterization of biodiversity has been extensively used to confidently monitor and assess environmental status. Yet, visual morphology, traditionally and widely used for species identification in coastal and marine ecosystem communities, is tedious and entails limitations. Metabarcoding coupled with high-throughput sequencing represents an alternative to rapidly, accurately and cost-effectively analyze thousands of environmental samples simultaneously, and this method is increasingly used to characterize the metazoan taxonomic composition of a wide variety of environments. However, a comprehensive...
