Specimens were collected by bulk plankton tows on the Atlantic Meridional Transect Cruise 22 (AMT22), on RRS James Cook from Oct-Nov 2012.

Data files associated with the publication:
Goetze, E., Hüdepohl, P., Chang, C., Iacchei, M., Van Woudenberg, L., Peijnenburg, K. T. C. A. (2016) Ecological dispersal barrier across the equatorial Atlantic in a migratory planktonic copepod. Progress in Oceanography – AMT special issue. doi:10.1016/j.pocean.2016.07.001

The data files included here were used in all population genetic analyses, which only included stations with sample sizes N > 40. Data files include:
(1) a README file describing the other files;
(2) A fasta file with all unique haplotypes (Goetze_et_al_2016_all_haplotypes.fasta);
(3) An infile formatted for use in Arlequin (; (Goetze_et_al_2016_plxi_mtCOI.arp);
(4) A population report file that describes the mtCOI haplotype composition of each sample (Goetze_et_al_2016_pop_report.html).

Note: In addition to these files, mtCOI sequences representing unique haplotypes from this study are available under GenBank accession numbers KT429028 - KT429159.
