Development of embedded microsatellite marker in Atlantic herring major histocompatibility genes.

Joint scientific publication UWAG, UGOT and UHULL describing the development and population genetics of a polymorphic non-neutral microsatellite marker embedded in the MHC class II alpha gene of Atlantic herring. This marker adds to the low number of microsatellite markers available specifically for Atlantic herring to perform population genetics analyses.
