Four reference databases for each of the primer sets used in: Doble C. J, Hipperson H, Salzburger W, Horsburgh G, Mwita C, Murrell D. J and Day J. J. (Accepted) Testing the performance of environmental DNA metabarcoding for surveying highly diverse tropical fish communities: A case study from Lake Tanganyika. Environmental DNA
Four primers were used: 1. 12S-V5; 2. MiFish-U; 3. 16s_Teleo; 4. Cichlid_CR. Reference databases for each of these primer sets contain fish species found within the Lake Tanganyika basin. For further information on specific species included within the reference databases see paper.
