Title Dietary DNA metabarcode sequences in fasta format
Downloaded 14 times
Description All DNA metabarcode sequences in the final dataset are given in fasta format. Each sequence identifier corresponds to a sequence ID listed in the Supporting Information Appendix Table S3 (for trnL-P6 sequences) or Table S7 (for family-specific ITS markers; poa=Poaceae, ast=Asteraceae, and cyp=Cyperaceae)

Title Local plant DNA reference library information
Downloaded 13 times
Description This file contains taxonomic information on the 1369 plant vouchers collected from Mpala Research Centre in Kenya that were used to produce the local plant DNA reference library for taxonomic assignation of dietary plant DNA sequences. The file includes (a) the project name and sample identifier required to access continuously updated data from the barcode of life datasystems (i.e., "BOLD") at boldsystems.org; (b) voucher locations and identifiers; and (c) the finest-level taxonomic identifications obtained to date. The DNA sequences associated with these specimens have been submitted to GenBank under the following accessions: KR737583 - KR738717 (trnL), KR733684 - KR734339 (ITS), KR736355 - KR737573 (rbcL), KR734343 - KR735185 (matK), and KR735186 - KR736041 (trnH-psbA). Sequence data associated with specific specimens may be obtained from GenBank by searching for the relevant BOLD Process Identifier.
