Relationship between genome-wide and MHC class I and II genetic diversity and complementarity in a nonhuman primate

Rachel Petersen, Christina Bergey, Christian Roos & James Higham
Although mate choice is expected to favor partners with advantageous genetic properties, the relative importance of genome-wide characteristics, such as overall heterozygosity or kinship, versus specific loci, is unknown. To disentangle genome-wide and locus-specific targets of mate choice, we must first understand congruence in global and local variation within the same individual. This study compares genetic diversity, both absolute and relative to other individuals (e.g., complementarity), assessed across the genome to that found at the...
