Data from: The effect of hybrid transgression on environmental tolerance in experimental yeast crosses

Rike B. Stelkens, Mike A. Brockhurst, Gregory D. D. Hurst, Eric L. Miller & Duncan Greig
Evidence is rapidly accumulating that hybridization generates adaptive variation. Transgressive segregation in hybrids could promote the colonization of new environments. Here, we use an assay to select hybrid genotypes that can proliferate in environmental conditions beyond the conditions tolerated by their parents, and we directly compete them against parental genotypes in habitats across environmental clines. We made 45 different hybrid swarms by crossing yeast strains (both Saccharomyces cerevisiae and S. paradoxus) with different genetic and...
