Publication in Molecular Ecology Resources: New generation sequencing makes it possible to characterize the immense diversity of co-amplifying immune genes in wild vertebrates

Characterisation of highly duplicated genes, such as those of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), remains a challenging task, yet these genes play a crucial role in coevolution of parasites with their hosts, and may affect the susceptibility of endangered species to disease. In a recent article in Molecular Ecology Resources (link) A. Sebastian, [...]
