Data from: Dynamic genomic architecture of mutualistic cooperation in a wild population of Mesorhizobium

Stephanie S. Porter, Joshua Faber-Hammond, Angeliqua P. Montoya, Maren L. Friesen & Cynthia Sackos
Research on mutualism seeks to explain how co-operation can be maintained when uncooperative mutants co-occur with cooperative kin. Gains and losses of the gene modules required for co-operation punctuate symbiont phylogenies and drive lifestyle transitions between cooperative symbionts and uncooperative free-living lineages over evolutionary time. Yet whether uncooperative symbionts commonly evolve from within cooperative symbiont populations or from within distantly related lineages with antagonistic or free-living lifestyles (i.e., third-party mutualism exploiters or parasites), remains controversial....
