Data from: A cost-efficient and simple protocol to enrich prey DNA from extractions of predatory arthropods for large-scale gut content analysis by Illumina sequencing

Henrik Krehenwinkel, Susan Kennedy, Stano Pekár & Rosemary G. Gillespie
Molecular analysis of predator gut content is a popular tool to uncover food web structure and has greatly profited from the emergence of next-generation sequencing technology. However, the molecular recovery of prey spectra comes with many challenges, particularly the overabundance of predator DNA in extractions. When predator and prey are distantly related, predator-specific blocking primers can be used to preferentially amplify prey DNA. But this is difficult in the case of arthropods, where prey and...
