Data - Biases in the metabarcoding of plant pathogens

We investigated and analysed the causes of differences between next-generation sequencing metabarcoding approaches and traditional DNA cloning in the detection and quantification of recognized species of rust fungi from environmental samples.

The resources (data files) represent the raw sequence data for analysis supporting this manuscript. Leaf samples from 30 sites were collected and analysed using Illumina MiSeq (folder ‘Illumina’), Ion Torrent PGM (file ‘IonTorrent.fastq’), cloning followed by Sanger sequencing (file ‘CloningSanger.fna’). The ‘barcodes.csv’ file contains the barcode names and the corresponding sites.
