This data was collected over the course of two winter seasons in an attempt to determine if bats were active in the Southeastern United States due to disease or other underlying factors. 

Pd= Pseudogymnoascus destructans

Column headings defined:
External ID: Swab vial label 
Site: Cave of capture
Date Collected: Date of capture
Sample: Swab sample collection
Species: Species of bat captured
Age: Age of individual at date of capture [A= adult, J= juvenile]
Sex: Sex of individual captured [M= male, F= female]
Mass: Weight of individual in grams
FA: Right forearm length of individual in millimeters 
WDI: Wing damage index of individual at time of capture
UV: Ultraviolet confirmation [YES= orange fluorescence, NO= no fluorescence]
Cumulative Result: Combined result of both assays [0= no Pd DNA detected, += Pd DNA detected]
Assay 1 Result: Result of assay 1 [0= no Pd DNA detected, += Pd DNA detected]
Assay 2 Result: Result of assay 2 [0= no Pd DNA detected, += Pd DNA detected]
Assay 1 FAM Ct: Ct score from positive result during first run [undetermined= no Pd detected in 40 cycles]
Assay 1 Fungal Load: Ct score converted to nanograms Pd [(10^((Ct Score-22.04942)/-3.34789)), NAN= negative result]
Assay 1 Fungal Load (log10): Assay 1 Fungal Load converted to Log10 nanograms [NAN = negative result]
Assay 2 Fam Ct: Ct score from positive result during second run [undetermined= no Pd detected in 40 cycles]
Assay 2 Fungal Load: Ct score converted to nanograms Pd [(10^((Ct Score-22.04942)/-3.34789)), NAN= negative result]
Assay 2 Fungal Load (log10): Assay 2 Fungal Load converted to Log10 nanograms [NAN= negative result]
Avg. Fungal Load (log10): Average fungal load (log10) nanograms of both Assay results
