Data from: Host species and environmental effects on bacterial communities associated with Drosophila in the laboratory and in the natural environment

Fabian Staubach, John F. Baines, Sven K├╝nzel, Elisabeth M. Bik & Dmitri A. Petrov
The fruit fly Drosophila is a classic model organism to study adaptation as well as the relationship between genetic variation and phenotypes. Although associated bacterial communities might be important for many aspects of Drosophila biology, knowledge about their diversity, composition, and factors shaping them is limited. We used 454-based sequencing of a variable region of the bacterial 16S ribosomal RNA gene to characterize the bacterial communities associated with wild and laboratory Drosophila isolates. In order...
