Summary of a workflow taking advantage of the symmetrical body plan of ticks. All tick samples were longitudinally bisected, each half being subjected to DNA extraction by either the ISOLATE Fecal DNA kit (Method 1) or the ISOLATE II Genomic DNA Kit (Method 2). All samples were sequenced using gene diversity profiling assays, targeting both the V1-V3 and V3-V4 16S rRNA hypervariable regions
