Data from: Investigation of genetic structure between deep and shallow populations of the southern rock lobster, Jasus edwardsii in Tasmania, Australia

Erin M. J. Morgan, Bridget S. Green, Nicholas P. Murphy & Jan M. Strugnell
The southern rock lobster, Jasus edwardsii, shows clear phenotypic differences between shallow water (red coloured) and deeper water (pale coloured) individuals. Translocations of individuals from deeper water to shallower waters are currently being trialled as a management strategy to facilitate a phenotypic change from lower value pale colouration, common in deeper waters, to the higher value red colouration found in shallow waters. Although panmixia across the J. edwardsii range has been long assumed, it is...

Data from: Genomic selection for recovery of original genetic background from hybrids of endangered and common breeds

Carmen Amador, Ben J. Hayes & Hans D. Daetwyler
Critically endangered breeds and populations are often crossed with more common breeds or subspecies. This results in genetic admixture that can be undesirable when it challenges the genetic integrity of wild and domestic populations, causing a loss in special characteristics or unique genetic material and ultimately extinction. Here, we present two genomic selection strategies, using genome-wide DNA markers, to recover the genomic content of the original endangered population from admixtures. Each strategy relies on the...
