Haptophyte Diversity and Vertical Distribution Explored by 18S and 28S Ribosomal RNA Gene Metabarcoding and Scanning Electron Microscopy

PMCID: 5574017
PMID: 27973742
DOI: 10.1111/jeu.12388

[…] Phylogenies were performed following EUKREF RAxML‐EPA (Evolutionary Placement Algorithm) pipeline (del Campo, pers. commun.) for a more reliable taxonomic assignation of reads than by BLAST. Curated haptophyte 18S and 28S rRNA gene refer […]


Metabarcoding based fungal diversity on coarse and fine particulate organic matter in a first order stream in Nova Scotia, Canada

PMCID: 4755416
PMID: 26918122
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.7930.r12182

[…] ting procedure (, accessed 7/2012), implementing denoising, trimming, alignment, filtering, chimera removal, classification, and preclustering steps against the eukaryotic reference database provided by Mothur. OTUs were calculated on a 97% basis of a final alignment with a median length of 279 nt and statistics (diversity estimates and similarities) were don […]


A microbial clock provides an accurate estimate of the postmortem interval in a mouse model system

PMCID: 3796315
PMID: 24137541
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.01104.016

[…] s into a tree of the Silva 108 eukaryotic representative set using the maximum likelihood EPA algorithm within RAxML (). Taxonomy was assigned to de novo reads using RDP () retrained on the Silva 108 eukaryotic reference database at the genus level within QIIME. […]
