Data from: Mitochondrial genomes of domestic animals need scrutiny

Ni-Ni Shi, Long Fan, Yong-Gang Yao, Min-Sheng Peng & Ya-Ping Zhang
More than 1000 complete or near-complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences have been deposited in GenBank for eight common domestic animals (cattle, dog, goat, horse, pig, sheep, yak and chicken) and their close wild ancestors or relatives, as well. Nevertheless, few efforts have been performed to evaluate the sequence data quality. Herein, we conducted a phylogenetic survey of these complete or near-complete mtDNA sequences based on mtDNA haplogroup trees for the eight animals. We show that...

Data from: Smaller is better: drift in gaze measurements due to pupil dynamics

Jan Drewes, Weina Zhu, Yingzhou Hu & Xintian Hu
Camera-based eye trackers are the mainstay of eye movement research and countless practical applications of eye tracking. Recently, a significant impact of changes in pupil size on gaze position as measured by camera-based eye trackers has been reported. In an attempt to improve the understanding of the magnitude and population-wise distribution of the pupil-size dependent shift in reported gaze position, we present the first collection of binocular pupil drift measurements recorded from 39 subjects. The...

Data from: Phylogeography and evolution of a fungal-insect association on the Tibetan Plateau

Yongjie Zhang, Shu Zhang, Yuling Li, Shaoli Ma, Chengshu Wang, Meichun Xiang, Xin Liu, Zhiqiang An, Jianping Xu & Xingzhong Liu
Parasitoidism refers to a major form of inter-species interactions where parasitoids sterilize and/or kill their hosts typically before hosts reach reproductive age. However, relatively little is known about the evolutionary dynamics of parasitoidism. Here we investigate the spatial patterns of genetic variation of Chinese cordyceps, including both the parasitoidal fungus Ophiocordyceps sinensis and its host insects. We sampled broadly from alpine regions on the Tibetan Plateau and obtained sequences on seven fungal and three insect...
