Abstract

High throughput sequencing has become a powerful tool for fungal ecologists to explore the diversity and composition of fungal communities. However, various biases and errors are associated with the new sequencing techniques that must be handled properly. We here provide evidence for a source of error that has not yet been taken into account.
