The data set contains Supplemental data sets for the Manuscript entitled "Where are they hiding? Testing the body snatchers hypothesis in pyrophilous fungi." Environmental sampling: Amplification of nuclear DNA regions (ITS1 and ITS2) were completed using the Fluidigm Access Array and the resulting amplicons were sequenced on an Illumina MiSeq v2 platform runs using rapid 2 × 250 nt paired-end reads. Illumina sequencing run amplicons that were size selected into <500nt and >500nt sub-pools, then remixed together <500nt: >500nt by nM concentration in a 1x:3x proportion. All amplification and sequencing steps were performed at the Roy J. Carver Biotechnology Center at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. ITS1 region primers consisted of ITS1F (5'-CTTGGTCATTTAGAGGAAGTAA-'3) and ITS2 (5'-GCTGCGTTCTTCATCGATGC-'3). ITS2 region primers consisted of fITS7 (5'-GTGARTCATCGAATCTTTG-'3) and ITS4 (5'-TCCTCCGCTTATTGATATGC-'3). Supplemental files 1 through 5 contain the raw data files. Supplemental 1 is the ITS1 Illumina MiSeq forward reads and Supplemental 2 is the corresponding index files. Supplemental 3 is the ITS2 Illumina MiSeq forward reads and Supplemental 4 is the corresponding index files.

This repository includes scripts, datasets, and supplementary materials for the study, "NJMerge: A generic technique for scaling phylogeny estimation methods and its application to species trees", presented at RECOMB-CG 2018. The supplementary figures and tables referenced in the main paper can be found in njmerge-supplementary-materials.pdf. The latest version of NJMerge can be downloaded from Github: https://github.com/ekmolloy/njmerge. ***When downloading datasets, please note that the following errors.*** In README.txt, lines 37 and 38 should read: + fasttree-exon.tre contains lines 1-25, 1-100, or 1-1000 of fasttree-total.tre + fasttree-intron.tre contains lines 26-50, 101-200, or 1001-2000 of fasttree-total.tre Note that the file names (fasttree-exon.tre and fasttree-intron.tre) are swapped. In tools.zip, the compare_trees.py and the compare_tree_lists.py scripts incorrectly refer to the "symmetric difference error rate" as the "Robinson-Foulds error rate". Because the normalized symmetric difference and the normalized Robinson-Foulds distance are equal for binary trees, this does not impact the species tree error rates reported in the study. This could impact the gene tree error rates reported in the study (see data-gene-trees.csv in data.zip), as FastTree-2 returns trees with polytomies whenever 3 or more sequences in the input alignment are identical. Note that the normalized symmetric difference is always greater than or equal to the normalized Robinson-Foulds distance, so the gene tree error rates reported in the study are more conservative. In njmerge-supplementary-materials.pdf, the alpha parameter shown in Supplementary Table S2 is actually the divisor D, which is used to compute alpha for each gene as follows. 1. For each gene, a random value X between 0 and 1 is drawn from a uniform distribution. 2. Alpha is computed as -log(X) / D, where D is 4.2 for exons, 1.0 for UCEs, and 0.4 for introns (as stated in Table S2). Note that because the mean of the uniform distribution (between 0 and 1) is 0.5, the mean alpha value is -log(0.5) / 4.2 = 0.16 for exons, -log(0.5) / 1.0 = 0.69 for UCEs, and -log(0.5) / 0.4 = 1.73 for introns.

This dataset contains genotypic and phenotypic data, R scripts, and the results of analysis pertaining to a multi-location field trial of Miscanthus sinensis. Genome-wide association and genomic prediction were performed for biomass yield and 14 yield-component traits across six field trial locations in Asia and North America, using 46,177 single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers mined from restriction site-associated DNA sequencing (RAD-seq) and 568 M. sinensis accessions. Genomic regions and candidate genes were identified that can be used for breeding improved varieties of M. sinensis, which in turn will be used to generate new M. xgiganteus clones for biomass.

Chronic contact exposure to realistic soil concentrations (0, 7.5, 15, and 100 ppb) of the neonicotinoid pesticide imidacloprid had species- and sex-specific effects on bee adult longevity, immature development speed, and mass. This dataset contains a life table tracking the development, mass, and deaths of a single cohort of Osmia lignaria and Megachile rotundata over the course of two summers. Other data files include files created for multi-event survival analysis to analyze the effect on development speed. Detected effects included: decreased adult longevity for female O. lignaria at the highest concentration, a trend for a hormetic effect on female M. rotundata development speed and mass (longest development time and greatest mass in the 15 ppb treatment), and decreased adult longevity and increased development speed at high imidacloprid concentrations as well as a hormetic effect on mass (lowest in the 15 ppb treatment treatment) on male M. rotundata.

We have recently created an approach for high throughput single cell measurements using matrix assisted laser desorption / ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI MS) (J Am Soc Mass Spectrom. 2017, 28, 1919-1928. doi: 10.1007/s13361-017-1704-1. Chemphyschem. 2018, 19, 1180-1191. doi: 10.1002/cphc.201701364). While chemical detail is obtained on individual cells, it has not been possible to correlate the chemical information with canonical cell types. Now we combine high-throughput single cell mass spectrometry with immunocytochemistry to determine lipid profiles of two known cell types, astrocytes and neurons from the rodent brain, with the work appearing as “Lipid heterogeneity between astrocytes and neurons revealed with single cell MALDI MS supervised by immunocytochemical classification” (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201812892). Here we provide the data collected for this study. The dataset provides the raw data and script files for the rodent cerebral cells described in the manuscript.

The text file contains the original DNA sequence data used in the phylogenetic analyses of Krishnankutty et al. (2016: Systematic Entomology 41: 580–595). The text file is marked up according to the standard NEXUS format commonly used by various phylogenetic analysis software packages. The file will be parsed automatically by a variety of programs that recognize NEXUS as a standard bioinformatics file format. The file contains five separate data blocks, one for each character partition (28S, histone H3, 12S, indels, and morphology) for 53 taxa (species). Gaps inserted into the DNA sequence alignment are indicated by a dash, and missing data are indicated by a question mark. The separate "indels1" block includes 40 indels (insertions/deletions) from the 28S sequence alignment re-coded using the modified complex indel coding scheme, as described in the "Materials and methods" of the original publication. The DIMENSIONS statements near the beginning of each block indicate the numbers of taxa (NTax) and characters (NChar). The file contains aligned nucleotide sequence data for 3 gene regions and 40 morphological characters. The file is configured for use with the maximum likelihood-based phylogenetic program GARLI but can also be parsed by any other bioinformatics software that supports the NEXUS format. Descriptions of the morphological characters and more details on the species and specimens included in the dataset are provided in the supplementary document included as a separate pdf. The original raw DNA sequence data are available from NCBI GenBank under the accession numbers indicated in the supporting pdf file. More details on individual analyses are provided in the original publication.
