Data from: Contracting patterns of diversity and population differentiation at the innate immunity gene Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) in two sympatric rodent species

Barbara Tschirren, Martin Andersson, Kristin Scherman, Helena Westerdahl & Lars Råberg
Comparing patterns of diversity and divergence between populations at immune genes and neutral markers can give insights into the nature and geographic scale of parasite-mediated selection. To date, studies investigating such patterns of selection in vertebrates have primarily focused on the acquired branch of the immune system, whereas it remains largely unknown how parasite-mediated selection shapes innate immune genes both within and across vertebrate populations. Here, we present a study on the diversity and population...
