Data from: A pleiotropic interaction between vision loss and hypermelanism in Astyanax mexicanus cave x surface hybrids

Joshua B. Gross, Amanda K. Powers, Erin M. Davis & Shane A. Kaplan
Background Cave-dwelling animals evolve various traits as a consequence of life in darkness. Constructive traits (e.g., enhanced non-visual sensory systems) presumably arise under strong selective pressures. The mechanism(s) driving regression of features, however, are not well understood. Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analyses in Astyanax mexicanus Pachón cave x surface hybrids revealed phenotypic effects associated with vision and pigmentation loss. Vision QTL were uniformly associated with reductions in the homozygous cave condition, however pigmentation QTL demonstrated...
