In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. In the autumn the University’s research outputs will be available to search and browse via a new Research Portal. Until then the University’s full publication record can be accessed via a temporary portal and the old eScholar content is available to search and browse via this archive.

A Nomenclature Committee for factors of the dog major histocompatibility system or dog leukocyte antigen (DLA) has been convened under the auspices of the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG) to define a sequence-based nomenclature for the genes of the DLA system. The remit of this committee includes: i) assignment of gene names; ii) rules for naming alleles; iii) assignment of names to published alleles; iv) assignment of names to new alleles; and v) rules for acceptance of new alleles.
