The file contains the microsatellite genotypes of the individuals used in the paper by Doums et al. Animal Behaviour (2017). Each line corresponds to an individual with its identity, enclosure number (enclosure 7 is missing), nest number, nest origin (QR = from queenright colony , QL = from queenless colony), its caste (male, foreignmale, diploidmale, worker, gyne, queen), its age (found at the pupal stage, as callow or adult), and its genotypes. For each microsatellite locus, the two alleles are given in two separated column labelled by the locus name and the allele number (a or b). Missing data or the second allele of haploid genotypes is indicated by NA.
