Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Fungal operational taxonomic units (OTUs) recovered from the skin of snakes. Each unique internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region DNA sequence variant (i.e., 100% identity) was assigned a numerical code and a presumptive taxon identification. The NWHC case number (see table S1) of the host(s) from which each variant was recovered is specified. A representative DNA sequence for each variant has been deposited in GenBank; bolded case numbers depict the snakes from which these deposited fungal DNA sequences originated. The assignment of each ITS variant to an OTU based on cut-offs of 99.5%, 99%, 98%, and 97% sequence identities is shown, with each OTU given an alpha-numeric code
