Data from: Multiplicity of infection does not accelerate infectivity evolution of viral parasites in laboratory microcosms

Alex R. Hall, Pauline D. Scanlan, Helen Leggett & Angus Buckling
Coinfection with multiple parasite genotypes (multiplicity of infection) creates within-host competition and opportunities for parasite recombination, and is therefore predicted to be important for both parasite and host evolution. We tested for a difference in the infectivity of viral parasites (lytic phage Φ2) and resistance of their bacterial hosts (Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25) under both high and low multiplicity of infection (MOI) during coevolution in laboratory microcosms. Results show that MOI has no effect on infectivity...
