Data from: Comparative genomics of chemosensory protein genes reveals rapid evolution and positive selection in ant-specific duplicates

Jonna Kulmuni, Yannick Wurm & Pekka Pamilo
Gene duplications can have a major role in adaptation, and gene families underlying chemosensation are particularly interesting due to their essential role in chemical recognition of mates, predators and food resources. Social insects add yet another dimension to the study of chemosensory genomics, as the key components of their social life rely on chemical communication. Still, chemosensory gene families are little studied in social insects. Here we annotated chemosensory protein (CSP) genes from seven ant...
