Data Extent

Immigration and cyclical bottlenecks: High inbreeding despite high genetic diversity in an oscillating population of the biting midge, Culicoides sonorensis (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae)

These data represent the microsatellite peak calls generated after genotyping the specimens, as well as, the outputs from downstream analyses and the metadata used to construct some of the figures and tables. The microsatellite data can be found in "Shults_2023_peak_calls.xlsx" and contains the identity of each peak scored scored using Geneious v.9.1 software. An "x" represents no peak call at that marker for that individual. These data were used as input for all of the subsequent population genetic analyses. All of the data used to create the tables and figures of the manuscript can be found in "Shults_2023_tables_figs.xlsx".

Resources in this dataset:

  • Resource Title: Microsatellite peak calls
    File Name: Shults_2023_peak_calls.xlsx
    Resource Description: Contained in this file are all of the individual specimens (rows) genotype during this project. An "x" represents an uncalled peak for that specific marker.

  • Resource Title: Tables and Figures
    File Name: Shults_2023_tables_figs.xlsx
    Resource Description: Contained in this file are all of the metadata used to create the tales and figures from the manuscript. Each tab is labeled with the corresponding information and IBT stands for isolation by time.
