Wide spectrum and high frequency of genomic structural variation, including transposable elements, in large double stranded DNA viruses

Our knowledge of the diversity and frequency of genomic structural variation segregating in populations of large double stranded (ds) DNA viruses is limited. Here we sequenced the genome of a baculovirus (AcMNPV) purified from beet armyworm (Spodoptera exigua) larvae at depths >195,000X using both short-read (Illumina) and long-read (PacBio) technologies. Using a pipeline relying on hierarchical clustering of structural variants (SVs) detected in individual short- and long-reads by six variant callers, we identified a total...

Data from: Evidence for locally adaptive metabolic rates among ant populations along an elevation gradient

Jonathan Zvi Shik, Xavier Arnan, Cristela S. Oms, Xim Cerda & Raphäel Boulay
1. As global temperatures rise, the mechanistic links between temperature, physiology and behavior will increasingly define predictions of ecological change. However, for many taxa, we currently lack consensus about how thermal performance traits vary within and across populations, and whether and how locally adaptive trait plasticity can buffer warming effects. 2. The metabolic cold adaptation hypothesis posits that cold environments (e.g. high elevations and latitudes) select for high metabolic rates (MR), even after controlling for...
