DNA extraction protocols cause differences in 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing efficiency but not in community profile composition or structure

PMCID: 4263514

[…] align frequently represented co-amplified ant 18S rRNA gene sequences and were also excluded from further analyses. The remaining sequences were then inserted into the Greengenes reference tree using ParsInsert ( Rarefaction curves were generated using mothur version 1.33.3 (Schloss et al. ). The OTU table was rarefied to a depth of 44,000 for further analyses. […]


Investigating the Impact of Storage Conditions on Microbial Community Composition in Soil Samples

[…] clustered de novo. We required that all OTUs have a count of at least two reads across all samples. OTUs that were not represented in the Greengenes reference tree were inserted into that tree using ParsInsert ( as implemented in QIIME so that phylogenetic measures of beta diversity could be used. Evenness was calculated using the equitability metric defined in Q […]
