Data from: Gene expression patterns underlying parasite-induced alterations in host behaviour and life history

Barbara Feldmeyer, Johanna Mazur, Sara Beros, Hannes Lerp, Harald Binder & Susanne Foitzik
Many parasites manipulate their hosts’ phenotype. In particular, parasites with complex life cycles take control of their intermediate hosts’ behaviour and life history to increase transmission to their definitive host. The proximate mechanisms underlying these parasite-induced alterations are poorly understood. The cestode Anomotaenia brevis affects the behaviour, life history and morphology of parasitized Temnothorax nylanderi ants and indirectly of their unparasitized nestmates. To gain insights on how parasites alter host phenotypes, we contrast brain gene...
