Quantitative metagenomic analysis of the fecal DNA of the Daubenton’s bat. The sequences (>50 bp) were assigned on the basis of best E-value BLASTN scores (http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast.cgi) in GenBank. Numbers refer to the amount of sequences assigned to a given taxon. No hits refers to sequences that had no similarity to any sequences in GenBank. Not assigned refers to sequences that had similarity in GenBank but they could not be reliably assigned to any organism. Arrows mark the ect
