454 sequencing reveals extreme complexity of the class II Major Histocompatibility Complex in the collared flycatcher

Abstract

Because of their functional significance, the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) class I and II genes have been the subject of continuous interest in the fields of ecology, evolution and conservation. In some vertebrate groups MHC consists of multiple loci with similar alleles; therefore, the multiple loci must be genotyped simultaneously. In such… (More)
