    Mol Ecol 15:923-37. 2006
    ..These results indicate that, at the scale studied here, drift and migration play a major role in the observed geographical variability of MHC genes in steelhead, and that contemporary selection is relatively weak and difficult to detect...

    Andres Aguilar
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095 USA
    BMC Evol Biol 5:47. 2005
    ..Previous microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA analyses had revealed little or no genetic differentiation among Cameroon localities but significant differentiation between localities in Cameroon and Ivory Coast...

    J Hered 97:133-42. 2006
    ..virens genomic or transcribed MHC sequences. The use of conserved MHC primers followed by analysis of cloned sequences allows rapid isolation of MHC loci from exotic species and avoids laborious large-scale cloning and sequencing...

    Mol Phylogenet Evol 51:373-81. 2009
    ..Additionally, these results suggest that differentiation in this group occurs at the river basin level and that the described genetic entities constitute distinct units and should be conserved as such...
