Network analysis with either Illumina or MinION reveals that detecting vertebrate species requires metabarcoding of iDNA from a diverse fly community

Amrita Srivathsan
DNA obtained from invertebrates (iDNA) can be metabarcoded in order to survey vertebrate communities. Here, we tested for specialization by sampling the dung and carrion fly community of a swamp forest remnant along a disturbance gradient (10 sites: 80–310 m from a road). This dataset contains Illumina and MinION datasets corresponding to metabarcoding experiments on 435 fly faecal samples. This involved the amplification of 3 genes (COI 244-bp fragment, COI 313-bp fragment, and 16S) from...
