Junya Hirai, Mikiko Kuriyama, Tadafumi Ichikawa, Kiyotaka Hidaka & Atsushi Tsuda
Marine planktonic copepods are an ecologically important group with high species richness and abundance. Here, we propose a new metagenetic approach for revealing the community structure of marine planktonic copepods using 454 pyrosequencing of nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA. We determined an appropriate similarity threshold for clustering pyrosequencing data into molecular operational taxonomic units (MOTUs) using an artificial community containing 33 morphologically identified species. The 99% similarity threshold had high species-level resolution for MOTU clustering...
