Data from: Microsatellite genotyping of medieval cattle from central Italy suggests an old origin of Chianina and Romagnola cattle

Maria Gargani, Lorraine Pariset, Johannes A. Lenstra, Elisabetta De Minicis & Alessio Valentini
Analysis of DNA from archaeological remains is a valuable tool to interpret the history of ancient animal populations. So far most studies of ancient DNA target mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), which reveals maternal lineages, but only partially the relationships of current breeds and ancient populations. In this study we explore the feasibility of nuclear DNA analysis. DNA was extracted from 1000-years old cattle bone collected from Ferento, an archaeological site in central Italy. Amplification of 15...

Data from: \"A reduced representation libraries approach for nuclear marker development via 454 sequencing applied on Tetramorium (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)\" in Genomic Resources Notes Accepted 1 February 2015 to 31 March 2015

To clarify species boundaries in the cryptic Tetramorium caespitum/impurum ant species complex, a multi-disciplinary approach is necessary. Nuclear DNA markers constitute one important step in species delimitation. We established a reduced representation library (RRL) based on amplified fragment-length polymorphism (AFLP) PCR products of four species. Amplicons were size-selected by gel-electrophoresis, DNA-fragments recovered from the agarose gels, and 454 libraries constructed by a commercial provider. Pyrosequencing yielded 490,155 reads, from which we designed cross-species amplifying primer...

Data from: \"Development of the draft genome sequence of the marbled flounder Pseudopleuronectes yokohamae as a reference of population genomic analysis\" in Genomic Resources Notes accepted 1 February 2015 – 31 March 2015

This article documents the public availability of the draft genome sequence data (raw reads, assembled contigs and unassembled reads) and RAD-tag read data of the marbled flounder Pseudopleuronectes yokohamae (Pleuronectiformes; Pleuronectidae).

Data from: \"Transcriptome resources for two highly divergent Silene latifolia populations\" in Genomic Resources Notes accepted 1 February 2015 – 31 March 2015

Peter Fields, Laura Weingartner & Lynda Delph
Here we have used next-generation Illumina sequencing to generate transcriptomes of four S. latifolia individuals from two morphologically divergent populations from disparate habitats, including including two females from Xativa, Spain and two males from Zagreb, Croatia. Spanish plants experience a much hotter, drier climate than Croatian plants, and the populations have ecologically relevant differences in floral and leaf characteristics (e.g., Spain has thicker leaves and produces fewer, larger flowers in comparison) (data not shown). This...
