Levels of thoracic underreplication were measured using flow cytometry in 132 species across the Drosophila genus. These measurements were used to estimated the proportion of the genome which is euchromatic versus heterochromatic. These data were then used to estimate the rate of change of euchromatin and heterochromatin in the genus and its subgenera. Additionally, a phylogeny was constructed for this group for comparative analyses using MrBayes. The files here include a csv of values for all species of interest, which includes genome size, chromosome number, underreplication value, amount of replicated DNA, amount of Unreplicated DNA, sex differences in genome size, sex differences in replicated DNA,and sex differences in unreplicated DNA. A consensus tree is uploaded which contains 152 species. The four tree files used to construct the consensus tree are also included. A tree file which has been adjusted to representevolutionary time for analyses is also included. Separate tree files trimmed for male and female data are also included.
These data include the phylogenies used for the analyses, as well as a csv file which includes values measured for each species.
