Data from: Long-range PCR allows sequencing of mitochondrial genomes from environmental DNA

Kristy Deiner, Mark A. Renshaw, Yiyuan Li, Brett P. Olds, David M. Lodge & Michael E. Pfrender
As environmental DNA (eDNA) from macro-organisms is often assumed to be highly degraded, current eDNA assays target small DNA fragments to estimate species richness by metabarcoding. A limitation of this approach is the inherent lack of unique species-specific single-nucleotide polymorphisms available for unequivocal species identification. We designed a novel primer pair capable of amplifying whole mitochondrial genomes and evaluated it in silico for a wide range of ray-finned fishes (Class: Actinopterygii). We tested the primer...
