The IPD-MHC Database provides a centralised repository for sequences of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) from a number of different species. Through a number of international collaborations IPD is able to provide the MHC sequences of different species. The sequences provided by each group are curated by experts in the field and then submitted to the central database. To know more about the database and how data is curated, please read the about page.
Query the IPD-MHC database for officially named alleles with the allele query tool.
The alignment tool provides access to multi locus, inter- and intra- species alignment.
Blast your sequence against the curated set of sequences in the IPD-MHC Database.
The primer design tool and virtual PCR allows to design locus specific or allele specific primers.

Full details of all the species included in IPD-MHC and their official designations are available in the taxonomy page. If you are working on MHC nomenclature and your species is not represented, please contact the Comparitive MHC Nomenclature Committee.
The Comparative Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) Nomenclature Committee seeks to provide a guiding framework for allelic nomenclature across all non-human species
