18S rRNA V9 metabarcoding for diet characterization: a critical evaluation with two sympatric zooplanktivorous fish species
(Wiley Blackwell, 2016-03)
The potential of the 18S rRNA V9 metabarcoding approach for diet assessment was explored using MiSeq paired-end (PE; 2 9 150 bp) technology. To critically evaluate the method's performance with degraded/digested DNA, the ...
Unraveling the environmental and anthropogenic drivers of bacterial community changes in the Estuary of Bilbao and its tributaries
(Public Library Science, 2017-06-08)
In this study, 16S rRNA gene sequencing was used to characterize the changes in taxonomic composition and environmental factors significantly influencing bacterial community structure across an annual cycle in the Estuary ...
Insights on the Origin of Invasive Copepods colonizing Basque Estuaries; a DNA Barcoding Approach
(Biomed Central, 2016-07-13)
Background: The introduction of NIS to estuaries and coastal embayment is of great concern. Commercial ships’ ballast water discharge and the northwards progression of species due to the ongoing climate change arise as ...
Response of Horticultural Soil Microbiota to Different Fertilization Practices
Environmentally friendly agricultural production necessitates manipulation of microbe–plant interactions, requiring a better understanding of how farming practices influence soil microbiota. We studied the effect of ...
