Data from: Genetic diversity, virulence and fitness evolution in an obligate fungal parasite of bees

Sophie. E. F. Evison, Kirsten Foley, Annette Bruun Jensen & William O. H. Hughes
Within-host competition is predicted to drive the evolution of virulence in parasites, but the precise outcomes of such interactions are often unpredictable due to many factors including the biology of the host and the parasite, stochastic events and co-evolutionary interactions. Here, we use a serial passage experiment (SPE) with three strains of a heterothallic fungal parasite (Ascosphaera apis) of the Honey bee (Apis mellifera) to assess how evolving under increasing competitive pressure affects parasite virulence...
