Title Rodent Bartonella Infection Data (Species-level Bartonella identification)
Description Bartonella infection status of all blood samples taken from Wood Mice and Bank Voles at Manor Wood (MW) at 3 sites in northwest England during 2011 and 2012 - Maresfield and Gordale (MFG) and Rode Hall (RH). Where "NUM.pITS.BANDS" is >1, this indicates that multiple bands were present on the gel following a genus-specific Bartonella PCR, thus indicating coinfection. Bartonella species identity were determined by size of the PCR amplicon. Presence or absence of each of 7 Bartonella species is indicated in separate columns. "HOST.ID" is a unique number given to each individual rodent using a subcutaneous microchip. "BLOOD.NO" identifies unique blood samples.

Title Rodent Bartonella Sequence Data
Description The identity of pITS variants detected in wood mice and bank voles sampled from 3 sites in Northwest England during 2011-2012 - Manor Wood (MW), Maresfield and Gordale (MFG) and Rode Hall (RH). "HOST.ID" is a unique number given to each rodent using a subcutaneous microchip. "BLOOD.NO." is a number that identifies each unique blood sample. Species identity of Bartonella was first determined by running PCR amplicons on an agarose gel. Most Bartonella species differ in length at this region of DNA and positive samples were grouped accordingly (size A = doshiae in BV and doshiae-like in WM, size B = grahamii, size C = taylorii, size D = birtlesii, size E = rochalimae-like in BV and BGA in WM). pITS band size is given for each sample, as multiple bands may have been sequenced from the same coinfected sample.

Title Flea Data
Downloaded 1 time
Description The species identity of fleas collected from Wood Mice and Bank Voles at 3 different sites in northwest England during 2012-2014 - Maresfield and Goredale (MFG), Rode Hall (RH) and Haddon Wood (HW). "FLEA.ID" is a unique identifier given to each flea collected. Information is given on whether DNA was extracted from each flea ("DNA.EXTRACTED.FROM.FLEA"), whether Bartonella DNA was detected in each flea ("BARTONELLA.DETECTED.IN.FLEA") and whether the Bartonella DNA was sequenced at the pITS region ("FLEA.BARTONELLA.SEQUENCED"), along with the pITS Bartonella variant detected in each flea ("BARTONELLA.VARIANT.IN.FLEA"). Information is also given about the rodent host from which each flea was collected, including "HOST.ID" (a unique identifier given to each rodent using a subcutaneous microchip), "HOST.BLOOD.NO." (the corresponding blood sample for each host if collected during the same sampling session), "BLOOD.BARTONELLA.PRESENT" (the infection status of host blood samples where available) and "BLOOD.BARTONELLA.VARIANT" (the pITS variant of any corresponding Bartonella-positive blood samples that were also sequenced at the pITS region).
