The data obtained from sequencing was processed using the MR DNA data processing pipeline (MR DNA, Shallowater, TX, USA). Sequences shorter than 150 bp, sequences with ambiguous base call and sequences depleted of barcodes and primers were removed. Operational taxonomic units (OTUs) were defined by clustering at 97% similarity followed by the removal of chimeras. OTUs were taxonomically classified using BLASTn against a curated database derived from RDPII and NCBI. All samples were run concurrently by blinded experimenters. Raw data have been deposited under the umbrella BioProject: PRJNA713927. Data are publicly accessible at
