In the present study, chickens of four lines divergently selected for high (H) and low (L) immunocompetence in replicate were analyzed to investigate polymorphisms of MHC class II and MHC class IV on the molecular level associated with selection. The long-term selection experiment for multitrait immunocompetence was carried out in replicates and allows… CONTINUE READING
