Dataset Open Access
This repository contains 3 original data files for a study of heritability in a half-sibling design of outbred multi-parent population of Drosophila melanogaster treated with 3 nutritional conditions.
1) lifespan_only.xlsx contains lifespan records.
setDate, start date
flipDate, observation date
fID, identity of line
repl, replicate number
treat, diet treatment (HS=high sugar, STD=standard, LY=low yeast)
NstartF, starting number of females
NstartM, starting number of males
box, ccord, rcoord are position coordinates of a vial in a holding box
deadF, number of female dead
deadM, number of males dead
cens, censored events
carriedF, dead females that flip to a new food vial
carriedM, dead males that flip to a new food vial
flipper initials of observer
time, time in which 108 vials were flipped.
2) feclife_with-image-ids.xlsx - lifespan observation vials are matched with a specific image of eggs collected at a specific day (once a week).
cameraid, image id assigned by the camera
handcounted, images counted by hand
handcount, number of eggs on an image counted by hand
training_set, images that were used to develop and test a prediction model
drop_from_lifespan & visually_recheck, quality control.
3) egg_images.tgz - all original images. Each image represent fecundity from a single vial at a specific date (in feclife_with-image-ids.xlsx ). The images have been cropped to remove the excess area outside the egg disc. The area outside the circular disc has been converted to black to peripheral eliminate noise.
