Data from: Natural selection and the genetic basis of osmoregulation in Heteromyid rodents as revealed by RNA-seq

Nicholas J. Marra, Andrea Romero & J. Andrew DeWoody
One adaptation of ecological and evolutionary interest is the extraordinary ability of desert rodents to retain water during waste production. Much is known regarding the unique kidney physiology of kangaroo rats (Dipodomys spp.) and their ability to retain water during waste production, yet the genetic basis of these physiological adaptations is relatively unknown. Herein, we utilized RNA-seq data to conduct a comparative study to identify osmoregulatory genes expressed in Heteromyid rodents. We sequenced kidney tissue...
