Data from: Competition is crucial for social comparison processes in long-tailed macaques

Stefanie Keupp, Rowan Titchener, Thomas Bugnyar, Thomas Mussweiler & Julia Fischer
Humans modulate their self-evaluations and behaviour as a function of conspecific presence and performance. In this study we tested for the presence of human-like social comparison effects in long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis). The monkeys’ task was to extract food from an apparatus by pulling drawers within reach and we measured latency between drawer-pulls. Subjects either worked on the task with a partner who could access the apparatus from an adjacent cage, worked in the absence...

Data from: The laboratory domestication of zebrafish: from diverse populations to inbred substrains

Jaanus Suurväli, Andrew R. Whiteley, Yichen Zheng, Karim Gharbi, Maria Leptin & Thomas Wiehe
We know from human genetic studies that practically all aspects of biology are strongly influenced by the genetic background, as reflected in the advent of ‘personalized medicine’. Yet, with few exceptions, this is not taken into account when using laboratory populations as animal model systems for research in these fields. Laboratory strains of zebrafish (Danio rerio) are widely used for research in vertebrate developmental biology, behaviour and physiology, for modelling diseases, and for testing pharmaceutic...
