    Transcriptomes of D. pseudoobscura adult male and female, RNA-Seq.

    Umbrella record for 2 collections of RNA-Seq data from adults. Transcriptome represented as frequency of reads along genome (see GBrowse presentation; data in wiggle format).

    Sample preparation

    Flies were raised in incubators with no photoperiod at 22 C and 60% humidity. Adults were aged 5-7 days post-eclosion and sorted by sex.


    mRNA was purified from total RNA using a QIAGEN Oligotex mRNA kit (Valencia, California). mRNA quality and quantity was determined by Bioanalyzer (Agilent, Santa Clara, California) and 260/280 ratio from Nanodrop ND-1000 UV spectrophotometer. Double-stranded cDNAs were made from mRNA using the Superscript II (Invitrogen) and random hexamer primers (Invitrogen). DNA fragment libraries were prepared for sequencing by addition adaptor oligonucleotides; cDNA templates were size-selected by gel purification (300bp +/- 25bp), then amplified by PCR using oligo-specific primers and Phusion polymerase. The amplified product was purified using a QIAquick column.

    Mode of Assay
    Data analysis

    Only Illumina GAII data was used. Raw reads were trimmed to 75 nt before mapping (shorter reads were removed) and mapped using TopHat (v2.0.8b) with parameters: -g 1 -r 150 --solexa1.3-quals (except for data from head samples where parameters were -g 1 -r 150).
