Data from: Faster-X Effects in two Drosophila lineages

Victoria Ávila, Sophie Marion De Procé, José L. Campos, Helen Borthwick, Brian Charlesworth & Andrea J. Betancourt
Under certain circumstances, X-linked loci are expected to experience more adaptive substitutions than similar autosomal loci. To look for evidence of faster-X evolution, we analyzed the evolutionary rates of coding sequences in two sets of Drosophila species, the melanogaster and pseudoobscura clades, using whole-genome sequences. One of these, the pseudoobscura clade, contains a centric 15 fusion between the ancestral X chromosome and the autosomal arm homologous to 3L in D.melanogaster. This offers an opportunity to...
