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.
The data contains tables in txt format with read counts for bacterial phyla (Phylum_level_readsCountTable.txt) and families (Family_level_readsCountTable.txt) in pooled samples from five different environments (nematodes, beetle gut, decaying beetle, native soil, and decaying beetle). Zero read counts (no reads mapping to a taxonomic group) has been replaced by a value of 1e-5 to facilitate downstream analysis, such as taking the logarithm. We pooled the reads of technical replicates into one single sample by adding up the read counts, including 1e-5 values. For this reason some entries are floating point values rather than integers. Tables contain detailed information about each sample such as environment, sequencing year, decaying status, species and beetle parts information for nematode gut samples.
