Data from: The role of immigration and local adaptation on fine-scale genotypic and phenotypic population divergence in a less mobile passerine

Vicente García-Navas, Esperanza S. Ferrer, Juan José Sanz & Joaquín Ortego
Dispersal and local patterns of adaptation play a major role on the ecological and evolutionary trajectory of natural populations. In this study, we employ a combination of genetic (25 microsatellite markers) and field-based information (seven study years) to analyse the impact of immigration and local patterns of adaptation in two nearby (< 7 km) blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) populations. We used genetic assignment analyses to identify immigrant individuals and found that dispersal rate is female-biased...

Data from: Individual genetic diversity and probability of infection by avian malaria parasites in blue tits (Cyanistes caeruleus)

Esperanza S. Ferrer, Vicente García-Navas, Juan Jose Sanz & Joaquin Ortego
Understanding the importance of host genetic diversity for coping with parasites and infectious diseases is a long-standing goal in evolutionary biology. Here, we study the association between probability of infection by avian malaria (Plasmodium relictum) and individual genetic diversity in three blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) populations that strongly differ in prevalence of this parasite. For this purpose, we screened avian malaria infections and genotyped 789 blue tits across 26 microsatellite markers. We used two different...

Data from: \"Transcriptome sequence identity between Lyme disease tick vectors, Ixodes scapularis and Ixodes ricinus\" in Genomic Resources Notes accepted 1 April 2014 to 31 May 2014

Marinela Contreras, Raquel Tobes, Libor Grubhoffer, Agustin Estrada-Peña & Jose De La Fuente
Ixodes scapularis and I. ricinus transmit the Lyme disease agent Borrelia burgdorferi in the U.S. and Europe, respectively. The only tick genome sequence available is that of I. scapularis, which constitutes a limitation for tick research. Recent evidences suggest that I. ricinus and I. scapularis transcriptomes share some degree of sequence identity. However, only the global transcriptome comparison reported here demonstrated that I. ricinus and I. scapularis share a 99.232±0.005 percent sequence identity with a...
