Data from: Biodiversity soup: metabarcoding of arthropods for rapid biodiversity assessment and biomonitoring

Douglas W. Yu, Yinqiu Ji, Brent C. Emerson, Xiaoyang Wang, Chengxi Ye, Chunyan Yang & Zhaoli Ding
1) Traditional biodiversity assessment is costly in time, money, and taxonomic expertise. Moreover, data are frequently collected in ways (e.g. visual bird lists) that are unsuitable for auditing by neutral parties, which is necessary for dispute resolution. 2) We present protocols for the extraction of ecological, taxonomic and phylogenetic information from bulk samples of arthropods. The protocols combine mass trapping of arthropods, mass-PCR amplification of the COI barcode gene, pyrosequencing, and bioinformatic analysis, which together...
