Sample barcoding facilitates the analysis of tens or even hundreds of samples in a single next-generation sequencing (NGS) run, but more efficient methods are needed for high-throughput barcoding and size-trimming of long PCR products. Here we present a two-step PCR approach for barcoding followed by pool shearing, adapter ligation, and 5' end selection for trimming sets of DNA templates of any size. Our new trimming method offers clear benefits for phylogenetic studies, since targeting exactly the same region maximizes the alignment and enables the use of operational taxonomic unit (OTU)-based algorithms.

Defining gut mycobiota for wild animals : a need for caution in assigning authentic resident fungal taxa Lavrinienko, Anton; Scholier, Tiffany; Bates, Scott T.; Miller, Andrew N.; Watts, Phillip C. (Biomed Central, 2021)Animal gut mycobiota, the community of fungi that reside within the gastrointestinal tract, make an important contribution to host health. Accordingly, there is an emerging interest to quantify the gut mycobiota of wild ...
Does Intraspecific Variation in rDNA Copy Number Affect Analysis of Microbial Communities? Lavrinienko, Anton; Jernfors, Toni; Koskimäki, Janne J.; Pirttilä, Anna Maria; Watts, Phillip C. (Elsevier, 2021)Amplicon sequencing of partial regions of the ribosomal RNA loci (rDNA) is widely used to profile microbial communities. However, the rDNA is dynamic and can exhibit substantial interspecific and intraspecific variation ...
The influence of oxygen and methane on nitrogen fixation in subarctic Sphagnum mosses Kox, Martine A. R.; Aalto, Sanni L.; Penttilä, Timo; Ettwig, Katharina F.; Jetten, Mike S. M.; van Kessel, Maartje A. H. J. (Springer, 2018)Biological nitrogen fxation is an important source of bioavailable nitrogen in Sphagnum dominated peatlands.
