Data from: Establishing detection thresholds for environmental DNA using receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curves

Natasha R. Serrao, Scott M. Reid & Chris C. Wilson
Environmental DNA (eDNA) detection is increasingly being used to assess the potential presence of aquatic species. Setting defensible thresholds for qPCR assays are necessary to differentiate “detection” from “non-detection”, but threshold rationales are rarely reported in eDNA studies. Detection thresholds for data inclusion and exclusion have implications for downstream data analysis; uncritical acceptance could result in false positive results (Type I error), whereas overly conservative thresholds could result in high false negative interpretation (Type II...
