Data from: The effect of parasite infection on the recombination rate of the yellow fever mosquito Aedes aegyti

Giacomo Zilio, Moesch Lea, Bovet Nathalie, Sarr Anouk & Koella Jacob
Sexual reproduction and meiotic recombination generate new genetic combinations and may thereby help an individual infected by a parasite to protect its offspring from being infected. While this idea is often used to understand the evolutionary forces underlying the maintenance of sex and recombination, it also suggests that infected individuals should increase plastically their rate of recombination. We tested the latter idea with the mosquito Aedes aegypti and asked whether females infected by the microsporidian...
