Data from: Drift and selection influence geographic variation at immune loci of prairie-chickens

Jennifer L. Bollmer, Elizabeth A. Ruder, Jeff A. Johnson, John A. Eimes & Peter O. Dunn
Previous studies of immunity in wild populations have focused primarily on genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC); however, studies of model species have identified additional immune-related genes that also affect fitness. In this study, we sequenced five non-MHC immune genes in six greater prairie-chicken (Tympanuchus cupido) populations that have experienced varying degrees of genetic drift as a consequence of population bottlenecks and fragmentation. We compared patterns of geographic variation at the immune genes with...
