Kort sammendrag av prosjektet på engelsk:

The immune system plays a crucial role in the life of every multicellular organism, due to constant attacks from pathogens. As a result, there is natural selection for an optimal immune gene repertoire, and sexual selection for optimisation of the immune capacity of progeny, which can only be achieved through the choice of an immunologically optimal mate.
