Evidence of the phenotypic expression of a lethal recessive allele under inbreeding in a wild population of conservation concern

Dataset

Description

1.Genotype data for pair-wise relatedness estimates : This file contains the microsatellite genotype data required for the analyses of pair-wise relatedness between affected and functionally unaffected nuclear families. Pair-wise relatedness estimates were calculated in the program COANCESTRY v.1.0.1.5 (Wang 2011).
2.Genotype data for multi-locus heterozygosity estimates :
This file contains the microsatellite genotype data required for the analyses of standardized multi-locus heterozygosity (sMLH) estimates between blind and non-blind individuals. sMLH was estimated using the program Genhet (Coulon 2010).
3.Brood size data: Dyadic maximum likelihood relatedness data
This file contains data required for the analyses of brood size in affected (where blind nestlings have been observed) and unaffected (where no blind nestlings have been observed) nuclear families, using both functionally unaffected families (defined in the main manuscript) or all unaffected families.
4. Dyadic maximum likelihood relatedness data: This file contains the dyadic maximum likelihood (DyadML) estimates of pair-wise relatedness between individuals from affected and functionally unaffected families. DyadML estimates were calculated in the program COANCESTRY v.1.0.1.5 (Wang 2011).
5.Standardized multi-locus heterozygosity data:
This file contains the standardized multi-locus heterozygosity (sMLH) estimates of blind and non-blind individuals. sMLH was estimated using the program Genhet (Coulon 2010).
