DNA metabarcoding of unfractionated water sample relates phyto-, zoo- and bacterioplankton dynamics and reveals a single-taxon bacterial bloom
Most studies of aquatic plankton focus on either macroscopic or microbial communities, and on either eukaryotes or prokaryotes. This separation is primarily for methodological reasons, but can overlook potential interactions among groups. Here we tested whether DNA metabarcoding of unfractionated water samples with universal primers could be used to qualitatively and quantitatively study the temporal dynamics of the total plankton community in a shallow temperate lake. Significant changes in...[Show more]
