Data from: Deep-sea, deep-sequencing: metabarcoding extracellular DNA from sediments of marine canyons

Magdalena Guardiola, María Jesús Uriz, Pierre Taberlet, Eric Coissac, Owen Simon Wangensteen & Xavier Turon
Marine sediments are home to one of the richest species pools on Earth, but logistics and a dearth of taxonomic work-force hinders the knowledge of their biodiversity. We characterized α- and β-diversity of deep-sea assemblages from submarine canyons in the western Mediterranean using an environmental DNA metabarcoding. We used a new primer set targeting a short eukaryotic 18S sequence (ca. 110 bp). We applied a protocol designed to obtain extractions enriched in extracellular DNA from...
