Metabarcoding or genome-skimming?

How do they perform on benthic macro-invertebrates? Here is the results. Bista, I.*, G. R. Carvalho, M. Tang, K. Walsh, X. Zhou, M. Hajibabaei, S. Shokralla, D. Bradley, S. Liu, M. Christmas, and S. Creer*. 2017. Performance of amplicon and shotgun sequencing for accurate biomass estimation in invertebrate community samples. Molecular Ecology Resources 18(5): 1020-1034. PDF. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1755-0998.12888 Abstract New applications of DNA and RNA sequencing are expanding the field of biodiver- sity discovery and ecological monitoring, yet questions remain regarding precision and efficiency. Due to primer bias, the ability of metabarcoding to accurately depict biom
