Rapid identification of major histocompatibility complex class I haplotypes using deep sequencing in an endangered Old World monkey

Abstract

Immunogenetic data from wild primate populations have been difficult to obtain, due to logistic and methodological constraints. We applied a well-characterized deep sequencing method for MHC I typing, developed for macaques, to a population of wild red colobus to assess the feasibility of identifying MHC I-A/B haplotypes. Ten individuals produced sufficient… (More)
