This data package contains four tables related to helminths and bacteria identified in the guts of North American shrews (Genus: Sorex). Tables include: two tables of specimen information about each shrew, such as species, museum collection identification, and NCBI accession IDs; one table of NBCI GenBank accession numbers of previously identified DNA sequences used in this study to design the helminth markers and serve as a reference library for the sequences obtained; and one table of taxonomic details of gut bacteria identified in this study.
