Little brown bats have experienced a 90% population decline due to fungal pathogen that causes a disease, white-nose syndrome. The authors used ddRADseq to compare surviving and non-surviving individuals. The results indicate shifts in allelic frequencies in genes associated with responses to the disease, suggesting evolutionary adaptation to the syndrome.
Pippin Prep was used to size-select ddRad libraries.
