Data from: Ecological and evolutionary dynamics of coexisting lineages during a long-term experiment with E. coli

Mickaël Le Gac, Jessica Plucain, Thomas Hindré, Richard E. Lenski & Dominique Schneider
Closely related organisms usually occupy similar ecological niches, leading to intense competition and even extinction. Such competition also can promote rapid phenotypic evolution and ecological divergence. This process may end with the stable occupation of distinct niches or, alternatively, may entail repeated bouts of evolution. Here we examine two Escherichia coli lineages, called L and S, that coexisted for more than 30,000 generations after diverging from a common ancestor. Both lineages underwent sustained phenotypic evolution...
