I am currently studying genetic diversity in several herds of African Buffalo in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Specifically, I am interested in the effect which increased genetic diversity at relevant immune loci has on immune phenotype and parental success. We have long-term infection data for these herds, providing a unique opportunity to characterize genotype and immune phenotype over time in a wild animal.
