Understanding genetic diversity in birds using MHC genes and a hypermutable microsatellite as model systems (completed)
Natural History Museum
Description of Project:
The project aims to understand the mode of evolution at microsatellites and MHC genes using passerine birds as model species.
Subproject 1: “Microsatellite markers – mutations and diversity”
Subproject 2: ”MHC genes in passerine birds – diversity and evolution”
