How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
The house sparrow (Passer domesticus) is an important model species in ecology and evolution. However, until recently genomic resources for molecular ecological projects have been lacking in this species. Here we present transcriptome sequencing data (RNA-Seq) from three different house sparrow tissues (spleen, blood and bursa). These tissues were...

Sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam., Convolvulaceae) counts among the most widely cultivated staple crops worldwide, yet the origins of its domestication remain unclear. This hexaploid species could have had either an autopolyploid origin, from the diploid I. trifida, or an allopolyploid origin, involving genomes of I. trifida and I. triloba. W...

Ecological communities around the world are under threat while a consensus theory of community structure remains elusive. In the last decade ecologists have struggled with two seemingly opposing theories: niche-based theory that explains diversity with species' differences and the neutral theory of biodiversity that claims that much of the diversit...
Data
Neighbour-joining tree based on Hamming distance between ITS haplotypes. Bootstrap values >50 are indicated for central nodes. Accessions names are those referenced in the Table S1. (TIFF)

Mechanisms of formation of the hexaploid genome of sweet potato. The formation of the hexaploid genome must have involved at least two steps, from diploidy to intermediate ploidy levels (triploid or tetraploid) and then hexaploidy. The most likely polyploidization route in sweet potato involves sexual mechanisms via the production of 2 n gametes, w...
Data
Passport data of the accessions used in the present study. Taxa name, ploidy level, ex situ collection names (CIP, NIAS, USDA), geographical origin data and GenBank. (XLS)
Data
IGS haplotypes majority rule consensus tree obtained with Bayesian and Maximum-likelihood reconstruction methods. Numbers along branches indicate bayesian posterior probabilities (first value) and bootstrap values (second value). Branches are colored according to the species they represent. When several species contained the same haplotype and were...
Data
Summary of the number of accessions typed for the three kinds of markers (-IGS- chloroplast sequence, -ITS- nuclear sequence and nuclear microsatellites –SSR-) and their geographic origins. For wild Ipomoea species, accessions refer to a population; the number of samples used is indicated between brackets. Accessions from the northern, Caribbean pa...
Data
Results obtained with the Bayesian clustering method. a) Variation of the posterior log-probability of the data as a function of the number of clusters. Values of likelihood increased from K = 1 to K = 10, showing that the fit of the model to the data is continuously improved when the number of clusters is increased. b) Variation of ΔK values. The...
