Sampling Methods

The ids and qseqids are MD5sums of the ASV sequence. Controls have been removed. These are DADA2-amplicons, no other clustering was performed. We haven’t filtered potential contaminants as some of these ASVs look real; they appear with some reads in the controls and with more reads in the real samples, and their species allocation looks correct for the area we sampled in.
