Title Mitochondrial 16s ribosomal gene fragment sequences from killer whale feces
Downloaded 19 times
Description There are 15 fasta files containing DNA sequences from a ~330bp fragment of the mitochondrial 16s ribosomal RNA gene. These sequences were amplified from 175 killer whale feces collected from the wild. The samples are pooled into 13 experimental groups; the numbers in the file names correspond to the sample pools described in Table S1 of the associated publication which contains sampling information (time, location, whale ID if known). Samples 23 and 24 are controls, as described in the publication. Methodological details including primers and sequencing methods are described in the associated publication.
