AFLP-analysis of Asterionella formosa in Dutch and Swiss lakes

Archived data
Availability: Unrestricted
The data are freely available to anybody and may be used for any purpose. Usage acknowledgement may be required

The dataset contains AFLP fingerprinting scores of 160 clonal isolates of the diatom Asterionella fromosa originating from several Dutch and Swiss lakes isolates in the years from 2001 to 2010. The band scores are presented in the sheet "AFLP results", the isolation locations and dates for the Asterionella isolates are presented in sheet "strains and isolation date", more information is included in the metadata. more

This dataset presents the fingerprinting scores of 160 different clonal isolates of the freshwater diatom Asterionella formosa based on amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP). As Asterionella colonies consist of uniclonal cells only, isolating single colonies is a simple way to achieve uniclonal cultures. Culture establishment from isolated colonies was fairly unbiased with a larger than 95% success rate. The AFLP analysis was performed by Keygene® (Wageningen, The Netherlands) using the same four EcoRI/Msel AFLP primer combinations as reported in De Bruin et al (2004), a) Eco+GA & Mse+AT, b) Eco+GA & Mse+CC, c) Eco+GA & Mse+CG, d) Eco+GC & Mse+AC. In the AFLP analysis each locus was treated as a separate character and scored for presence or absence, yielding a binary data matrix for each early and late bloom subset of genotypes separately.
