Diet DNA metabarcoding data from spiders (Heteropoda venatoria) from Palmyra Atoll (2015-2017) with both individual samples that have and have not been surface sterilized

Ana Miller-Ter Kuile, Austen Apigo & Hillary Young
These are data and code from a study examining the potential for surface contamination to influence diet DNA metabarcoding datasets when DNA is sequenced from full body parts (in this case, the opisthosomas of spider individuals). These datasets include the raw sequencing data, all downstream datasets, and taxonomic assignments collected from database searches on BOLD and GenBank (accessed 2019). The code includes code to reproduce all bioinformatics (merge, filter, match to taxonomies, rarefy, sort) as...
