Data from: The genetics of cuticular hydrocarbon profiles in the fruit fly Drosophila simulans

Manmohan D. Sharma, Christopher Mitchell, John Hunt, Tom Tregenza & David J. Hosken
Female mate choice is one mechanism of sexual selection and, provided there is adequate genetic variation in the male traits that are the target of this selection, they will evolve via female choice. Cuticular hydrocarbons (CHCs) are important in Drosophila mate choice, but relatively little is known about the underlying genetic architecture of CHC profiles in Drosophila simulans. Here we used gas chromatography-mass spectrometry to investigate patterns of genetic variation in the CHC profiles of...
