Data from: Landscape genetics highlights the role of bank vole metapopulation dynamics in the epidemiology of Puumala hantavirusEmmanuel Guivier, Maxime Galan, Yannick Chaval, Anne Xuéreb, Alexis Ribas Salvador, Marie-Lazzarine Poulle, Liina Voutilainen, Heikki Henttonen, Nathalie Charbonnel & Jean François Cosson
Rodent host dynamics and dispersal are thought to be critical for hantavirus epidemiology as they determine pathogen persistence and transmission within and between host populations. We used landscape genetics to investigate how the population dynamics of the bank vole Myodes glareolus, the host of Puumala hantavirus (PUUV), vary with forest fragmentation and influence PUUV epidemiology. We sampled vole populations within the Ardennes, a French PUUV endemic area. We inferred demographic features such as population size,...
Data from: Inferring the origin of populations introduced from a genetically structured native range by approximate Bayesian computation: case study of the invasive ladybird Harmonia axyridisEric Lombaert, Thomas Guillemaud, Cathleen E.

Correct identification of the source population of an invasive species is a prerequisite for testing hypotheses concerning the factors responsible for biological invasions. The native area of invasive species may be large, poorly known and/or genetically structured. Because the actual source population may not have been sampled, studies based on molecular markers may generate incorrect conclusions about the origin of introduced populations. In this study, we characterized the genetic structure of the invasive ladybird Harmonia...
Data from: High-throughput microsatellite isolation through 454 GS-FLX Titanium pyrosequencing of enriched DNA librariesThibaut Malausa, André Gilles, Emese Meglécz, Hélène Blanquart, Stéphanie Duthoy, Caroline Costedoat, Vincent Dubut, Nicolas Pech, Philippe Castagnone-Sereno, Christophe Délye, Nicolas Feau, Pascal Frey, Philippe Gauthier, Thomas Guillemaud, Laurent Hazard, Valérie Le Corre, Brigitte Lung-Escarmant, Pierre-Jean G Malé, Stéphanie Ferreira & Jean-François Martin
Microsatellites (or SSR: simple sequence repeat) are among the most frequently used DNA markers in many areas of research. The use of microsatellite markers is limited by the difficulties involved in their de novo isolation from species for which no genomic resources are available. We describe here a high-throughput method for isolating microsatellite markers based on coupling multiplex microsatellite enrichment and Next-Generation Sequencing on 454 GS-FLX Titanium platforms. The procedure was calibrated on a model...
Data from: Genetic structure and inferences on potential source areas for the invasive oriental fruit fly Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) based on mitochondrial and microsatellite markersWei Shi, Carole Kerdelhué & Hui Ye
Bactrocera dorsalis (Diptera: Tephritidae) is mainly distributed in tropical and subtropical Asia and in the Pacific region. Despite its economic importance, very few studies have addressed the question of the wide genetic structure and potential source area of this species. This pilot study attempts to infer the native region of this pest and its colonization pathways in Asia. Combining mitochondrial and microsatellite markers, we evaluated the level of genetic diversity, genetic structure, and the gene...
Data from: Phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial and nuclear data in haematophagous flies support the paraphyly of the genus Stomoxys (Diptera: Muscidae)Najla Dsouli, Frédéric Delsuc, Johan Michaux, Eric De Stordeur, Arnaud Couloux, Michel Veuille & Gérard Duvallet
The genus Stomoxys Geoffroy (Diptera; Muscidae) contains species of parasitic flies that are of medical and economic importance. We conducted a phylogenetic analysis including 10 representative species of the genus including multiple exemplars, together with the closely related genera Prostomoxys Zumpt, Haematobosca Bezzi, and Haematobia Lepeletier & Serville. Phylogenetic relationships were inferred using maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods from DNA fragments from the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI, 753 bp) and cytochrome b (CytB,...
