Dear colleagues,

we would like to bring to your attention two papers that we recently published to present tools and guidelines for DNA analysis of environmental samples, particularly coral reef fish gut contents. Both papers are open-access.

Leray M., Agudelo N., Mills S.C. and Meyer C.P. Effectiveness of annealing blocking primers versus restriction enzymes for characterization of generalist diets: unexpected prey revealed in the gut contents of two coral reef fish species. PLoS ONE 8(4) http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0058076

Leray M., Yang J.Y, Meyer C.P., Mills S.C, Agudelo N., Ranwez V., Boehm J.T.. and Machida R.J. A new versatile primer set targeting a short fragment of the mitochondrial COI region for metabarcoding metazoan diversity – application for characterizing coral reef fish gut contents. Frontiers in Zoology 10(34) http://www.frontiersinzoology.com/content/10/1/34
