To determine the optimal method for fecal DNA preservation, we collected fecal samples from one canine donor and stored aliquots in RNAlater, 70% ethanol, 50:50 glycerol:PBS, or without buffer at 25°C, 4°C, and -80°C. Fecal DNA was extracted, quantified, and 16S rRNA gene analysis performed on days 0, 7, 14, and 56 to evaluate changes in DNA concentration, purity, and microbial diversity and composition over time
