Canonical Descriminant Analysis (excluding the outliers S. contumazaense, S. longiconicum, and S. trinitense) using just the 28 normally distributed morphological characters of members of ser. Conicibaccata and Piurana and 35 normally distributed morphological characters of only members of ser. Conicibaccata
Means, ranges, and one standard deviation of the mean for five of the 17 morphological characters determined by Stepwise Discriminant Analysis to discriminate members of ser. Conicibaccata from members of ser. Piurana
Protein sequences for Additional Figure 4 (phylogeny of the caspase family)
Contains raw data for all four assays described in the paper.
phylogeny of the caspase family
Parasite data. Ind denontes the individual identifier. Deme and Pop denote the deme and site of origin, respectively, of each individual. SL denotes standard length, in mm, from snout to caudal peduncle. Wt denotes weight, in grams, and k denotes Fulton's condition factor. Parasite taxa follow: larval digeneans (Blk.Spt), gill copepods (Gill.Cop), monogenean (Monogen) and digenean (Digen) trematodes, nematodes (Nem), acanthocephalans (Acanth), cestodes (Cest), plerocercoids (Pler). Total parasite infection of each individual are described via...

Data from: Comparison of regional gene expression differences in the brains of the domestic dog and humanErin Kennerly, Susanne Thomson, Natasha Olby, Matthew Breen & Greg Gibson
Comparison of the expression profiles of 2,721 genes in the cerebellum, cortex and pituitary gland of three American Staffordshire terriers, one beagle and one fox hound revealed regional expression differences in the brain but failed to reveal marked differences among breeds, or even individual dogs. Approximately 85 per cent (42 of 49 orthologue comparisons) of the regional differences in the dog are similar to those that differentiate the analogous human brain regions. A smaller percentage...
Data from: Impact of population structure on genetic diversity of a potential vaccine target in the canine hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum)Jennifer M. Moser, Ignazio Carbone, Prema Arasu & Greg Gibson
Ancylostoma caninum is a globally distributed canine parasitic nematode. To test whether positive selection, population structure, or both affect genetic variation at the candidate vaccine target Ancylostoma secreted protein 1 (asp-1), we have quantified the genetic variation in A. caninum at asp-1 and a mitochondrial gene, cytochrome oxidase subunit 1 (cox-1), using the statistical population analysis tools found in the SNAP Workbench. The mitochondrial gene cox-1 exhibits moderate diversity within 2 North American samples, comparable...

Data from: Nitrate reductase phylogeny of potato (Solanum sect. Petota) genomes with emphasis on the origins of the polyploid speciesFlor Rodríguez & David M. Spooner
Solanum section Petota is taxonomically difficult, partly because of interspecific hybridization at both the diploid and polyploid levels. There is much disagreement regarding species boundaries and affiliation of species to series. Elucidating the phylogenetic relationships within the polyploids is crucial for an effective taxonomic treatment of the section and for the utilization of wild potato germplasm in breeding programs. We here infer relationships among the potato diploids and polyploids using nitrate reductase (NIA) sequence data...
EST (Expressed Sequence tags) of Microbotryum violaceum on S. nutans
ESTs of Microbotryum violaceum on S. vulgaris
This text file is in a format compatible with F. James Rohlf’s TPS morphometrics programs (http://life.bio.sunysb.edu/morph/). The data are the raw x-y coordinates for all 147 specimens. “LM=16” indicates that 16 landmarks were scored. The left and right column of numbers reflects the x and y coordinates, respectively, in pixels. Multiply by the indicated scale factor to convert pixels to centimeters. The “ID” reflects fishID/treatment. Treatments can be discerned from the corresponding excel file, or...
This data file contains two types of data. First are the lengths of the 3 longest gill rakers on the first gill arch of all specimens. Second are the Procrustes superimposed x-y coordinates for all specimens (see figure 2 in manuscript for landmark locations). Families are nested within populations, and fish are nested within families. The “TPS Picture #” column corresponds with the order of specimens in the accompanying TPS text file. Thus, if the...
