Data from: The evolution of highly variable immunity genes across a passerine bird radiation.

Emily O'Connor, Maria Strandh, Dennis Hasselquist, Jan-Åke Nilsson & Helena Westerdahl
To survive, individuals must be able to recognize and eliminate pathogens. The genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) play an essential role in this process in vertebrates as their diversity affects the repertoire of pathogens that can be recognized by the immune system. Emerging evidence suggests that birds within the parvorder Passerida possess an exceptionally high number of MHC genes. However, this has yet to be directly investigated using a consistent framework, and the...
