Summary

The purpose of these datasets was to define which samples contained antibiotic resistance genes (screened antibiotic resistance gene targets) and the number of detectable targets per sample (sediment, coral mucus and water). These data were determined from samples collected in Southeast Florida and the Florida Keys, in support of the Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative.
