  • This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) under accession number PRJEB36347. The dataset contains whole-genome sequencing from 13 natural populations of the Trinidadian guppy (Poecillia reticulata) (n=272) sampled across a range of colour and predation schemes. Data were collected to investigate the ecological genomics of Negative Frequency Dependent Selection (NFDS). Guppy males are colourful, displaying a mosaic of complex and varied colouration patterns; in comparison, females are drab and inconspicuous. Females prefer rare males and rare males show higher reproductive fitness. Rare males also have a significantly higher survival advantage. This project used genome scans to identify the evolutionary signatures of NFDS.

  • This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) under accession number PRJEB36506. Guppy (Poecilia reticulata) colour traits have fascinated biologists for a hundred years, and present a unique system for investigating the evolution of colour polymorphism. The aim of this project is to identify regions of the guppy genome responsible for colour patterning in males of the species (the sex which shows colour patterning). Using pool-sequencing, we genotyped four inbred guppy lines (n=48 per line), which originate from a natural guppy population, Paria. Each line was founded by one male showing distinct colouration patterns, and has been backcrossed with unrelated females every generation for ~40 generations, allowing Y-linked colour to be inherited intact from father to son (iso-Y lines).

  • Sequence data from blood samples, taken from a wild population of long-lived birds (mute swans; Cygnus olor) that has experienced three outbreaks of related H5 HPAIVs in the past decade, specifically, H5N1 (2007), H5N8 (2016) and H5N6 (2017). Detailed demographic data were available and intense sampling was conducted before and after the outbreaks. This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in NCBI Genbank at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore with accession numbers MH819084 to MH819175 (inclusive)

  • This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived on the ArrayExpress repository (EBI). Dataset contains RNA-seq fastq data files for 83 common carp kidney samples as a function of time after cooling. The carp were held in two large aquarium tanks, one which remained throughout at 25°C (control) and the other that was cooled over 3 days to 11°C and held for 23 days. Replicate specimens from both tanks were then killed at up to 17 timepoints after cooling, kidney tissue was sampled, and transcript expression as a function of time after cooling determined by RNA-seq.
