Non-invasive surveys of mammalian viruses using environmental DNA
Alfano, Niccolò et al. (2021), Non-invasive surveys of mammalian viruses using environmental DNA, Dryad, Dataset, https://doi.org/10.5061/dryad.2v6wwpznc
This dataset contains several supplementary files that support the findings of Alfano N, Dayaram A, et al. 2021 (https://doi.org/10.1111/2041-210X.13661). It contains phylogenetic trees of the different virus families, assembly plots of the viral sequencing reads and other supportive information.
The readme file contains an explanation of each of the variables in the supplemental tables (Suppl._Tab._1 - Suppl._Tab._5). NA denotes not available information. For detailed information on how data was processed please see the method section in the above publication (Alfano, N. & Dayaram, A., et al. (2021)).
It contains additional information on the check for potentail suid DNA contaminations, phylogenetic trees of the different virus families and assembly plots of the viral sequencing reads.
Read counts for leech and waterhole samples.
Primers used and amplification results obtained for the leech viral contigs confirmation PCRs.
Leech and vertebrate species genomes used in BLAST searches to identify potential endogenous viral elements among the viral sequences generated in this study.
Best BLAST hit for each viral contig identified in leech and waterhole samples.
Viral enrichment achieved by capture for each sample.
