Our paper investigating how pathogen richness, the cost of expressing MHC variants, and pathogens' mutation rate shape the individual MHC copy number is out!

We have gotten published! Jacek Radwan and I published a paper titled "Evolution of major histocompatibility complex gene copy number". It's a theoretical study using agent-based simulation I'd coded addressing the question how parasite diversity, their speed of evolution and costs of expressing MHC proteins shape the MHC genes' individual copy number variation in hosts.
