Data from: DNA metabarcoding multiplexing and validation of data accuracy for diet assessment: application to omnivorous diet

Marta De Barba, Christian Miquel, Frederic Boyer, Céline Mercier, Delphine Rioux, Eric Coissac & Pierre Taberlet
Ecological understanding of the role of consumer-resource interactions in natural food webs is limited by the difficulty of accurately and efficiently determining the complex variety of food types animals have eaten in the field. We developed a method based on DNA metabarcoding multiplexing and next-generation sequencing to uncover different taxonomic groups of organisms from complex diet samples. We validated this approach on 91 faeces of a large omnivorous mammal, the brown bear, using DNA metabarcoding...
