Data from: Mapping QTL contributing to variation in posterior lobe morphology between strains of Drosophila melanogaster

Jennifer L. Hackett, Xiaofei Wang, Brittny R. Smith, Stuart Macdonald & Stuart J. Macdonald
Closely-related, and otherwise morphologically similar insect species frequently show striking divergence in the shape and/or size of male genital structures, a phenomenon thought to be driven by sexual selection. Comparative interspecific studies can help elucidate the evolutionary forces acting on genital structures to drive this rapid differentiation. However, genetic dissection of sexual trait divergence between species is frequently hampered by the difficulty generating interspecific recombinants. Intraspecific variation can be leveraged to investigate the genetics of...
