Data from: Taxonomy-free molecular diatom index for high-throughput eDNA biomonitoring

Laure Apothéloz-Perret-Gentil, Arielle Cordonier, François Straub, Jennifer Iseli, Philippe Esling & Jan Pawlowski
Current biodiversity assessment and biomonitoring are largely based on the morphological identification of selected bioindicator taxa. Recently, several attempts have been made to use eDNA metabarcoding as an alternative tool. However, until now, most applied metabarcoding studies have been based on the taxonomic assignment of sequences that provides reference to morphospecies ecology. Usually, only a small portion of metabarcoding data can be used due to a limited reference database and a lack of phylogenetic resolution....
