Data from: Evolution of Drosophila resistance against different pathogens and infection routes entails no detectable maintenance costs

Vitor G. Faria, Nelson E. Martins, Tânia Paulo, Luís Teixeira, Élio Sucena & Sara Magalhães
Pathogens exert a strong selective pressure on hosts, entailing host adaptation to infection. This adaptation often affects negatively other fitness-related traits. Such trade-offs may underlie the maintenance of genetic diversity for pathogen resistance. Trade-offs can be tested with experimental evolution of host populations adapting to parasites, using two approaches: (1) measuring changes in immunocompetence in relaxed-selection lines and (2) comparing life-history traits of evolved and control lines in pathogen-free environments. Here, we used both approaches...
