Abstract

The study used genetic mapping and coverage data in genome sequences of multiple male and female individuals of M. picta from multiple natural populations to investigate genetic degeneration of the Y chromosome, and quantify gene loss from the Y. The files include coverage results from the sex chromosome that were (i) used for sexing the sequenced individuals, and (ii) combined with autosomal results to analyze M/F, M/A and F/A depth of coverage ratios. Genetic mapping was also used to validate sex linkage, and the data set includes files with genotypes of genetic markers.

Methods

​​​​​​The methods are described in detail in the PLoS Genetics paper, a manuscript that is currently in revision for Genome Biology and Evolution — GBE-210408.R1, and the unpublished paper, Bergero et al., 2019 (see reference above).

Usage Notes

The readme file contains an explanation of each of the datasets. 

NOTE: an assembly of the M. picta genome is available in the European Nucleotide Archive under accession number ERZ1744533 (https://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena/browser/text-search?query=PRJEB43222).
