Non-Human Primate (NHP) Allele Searches

You can now search the IPD-MHC NHP database on a number of different levels. Please read the following before performing a search.

  • All official allele names are of the form Species-Gene*Allele.
  • To search for all alleles for a particular species, enter the 4 letter species code. For example for all Chimpanzee alleles you would enter 'Patr' in the search tool.
  • To search for all alleles for a particular gene, enter the 4 letter species code followed by a hyphen then the gene name. For example for all Chimpanzee A alleles you would enter 'Patr-A' in the search tool.
  • To search for all alleles for a particular lineage,enter the 4 letter species code followed by a hyphen then the gene name, follow this with an asterisk and then the numerical lineage code. For example for all Chimpanzee A*01 alleles you would enter 'Patr-A*01' in the search tool.
  • The search tool is not case sensitive so PATR, PAtr and patr would all provide matches to Patr.
