Data from: Interactions among bacterial strains and fluke genotypes shape virulence of co-infection

Katja-Riikka Louhi, Lotta-Riina Sundberg, Jukka Jokela & Anssi Karvonen
Most studies of virulence of infection focus on pairwise host-parasite interactions. However, hosts are almost universally co-infected by several parasite strains and/or genotypes of the same or different species. While theory predicts that co infection favours more virulent parasite genotypes through intensified competition for host resources, knowledge of effects of genotype by genotype (G×G) interactions between unrelated parasite species on virulence of co infection is limited. Here we tested such relationship by challenging rainbow trout...
