Data underlying the publication: Intraspecies variation offers potentials to improve white rot fungi for increasing degradability of lignocellulose for ruminants



Wheat straw (pretreated as described in the M & M paragraph of the manuscript) was inoculated with 30 different strains of white rot fungi and incubated for 7 weeks in plastic containers with air filters.
12 strains of Ceriporiopsis subvermispora, 8 strains of Lentinula edodes and 10 strains of PLeurotus eryngii were used.

At 1, 3, 5 and 7 weeks, three containers (replicates)were sacrifised and analysed.
The T=0 samples were analysed without an inoculum. To correct for this ommission estimates for T=0 were made by using data from previous experiments (Nazri Nayan 2018: Discerning the variation in fungal-treated wheat straw as ruminant feed,

Blanc cells are outliers with a deviation of more than 2 x standard deviation.
