Data from: Population-level effects of fitness costs associated with repressible female-lethal transgene insertions in two pest insects

Tim Harvey-Samuel, Thomas Ant, Neil Morrison, Hongfei Gong & Luke Alphey
Genetic control strategies offer great potential for the sustainable and effective control of insect pests. These strategies involve the field release of transgenic insects with the aim of introducing engineered alleles into wild populations, either permanently or transiently. Their efficacy can therefore be reduced if transgene-associated fitness costs reduce the relative performance of released insects. We describe a method of measuring the fitness costs associated with transgenes by analyzing their evolutionary trajectories when placed in...
