Data from: Evolutionary relationships within the Triops (Notostraca: Branchiopoda) using complete mitochondrial genomes

Rebekah L. Horn & David E. Cowley
The tadpole shrimp (Notostraca: Triops) have been called living fossils with conserved morphology, but subtle morphological variations within and between species has yielded confused taxonomic assignments. To aid in cryptic species detection of tadpole shrimp from southern New Mexico, USA, the first complete mitochondrial genomes for three putative species (T. longicaudatus “long,” T. l. “short,” T. newberryi) are reported. The genomes ranged in length from 15,058 bp to 15,060 bp with 13 coding genes, 22...

Data from: A single-nucleotide polymorphism-based approach for rapid and cost-effective genetic wolf monitoring in Europe based on noninvasively collected samples

Noninvasive genetics based on microsatellite markers has become an indispensable tool for wildlife monitoring and conservation research over the past decades. However, microsatellites have several drawbacks, such as the lack of standardisation between laboratories and high error rates. Here, we propose an alternative single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-based marker system for noninvasively collected samples, which promises to solve these problems. Using nanofluidic SNP genotyping technology (Fluidigm), we genotyped 158 wolf samples (tissue, scats, hairs, urine) for 192...
