datasetposted on 27.03.2018, 08:13 by Zahida Sultanova, Muhammed Andic, Pau Carazo
Male/Female lifespan data for the manuscript accepted in Evolution titled as: "The “unguarded-X” and the genetic architecture of lifespan: Inbreeding results in a potentially maladaptive sex-specific reduction of female lifespan in Drosophila melanogaster". It also contains data from a previous experiment with the same design (Carazo P, Green J, Sepil I, Pizzari T, Wigby S (2016) Inbreeding removes sex differences in lifespan in a population of Drosophila melanogaster. Biology Letters 12(6): 20160337.). In the csv file the variables are as follows: Experiment (as the name of the experiment, A is the one done by Carazo et al 2016 and B is the current experiment), ID (identification name for each isoline), Inbreeding (the inbreeding treatment, LSm (male lifespan in days), LSf (female lifespan in days), SE (Social Environment).
