Hla-mapper: An application to optimize the mapping of HLA sequences produced by massively parallel sequencing procedures

This manuscript describes the hla-mapper software, a tool to optimize mappings of HLA-related reads.

MHC Variants Associated With Symptomatic Versus Asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Highly Exposed Individuals

Here we detected MICA, MICB, HLA-DOB, and HLA-DRB1 polymorphisms associated with SARs-CoV-2 infection susceptibility and protection studying highly exposed individuals.
