HLA Completion - small typo

Sep 14, 2009 at 6:20 AM


There is a small but significant typo in the summary info on the HLA Completion tool. Where it states:

"For example, an allele may be identified as A6801/6802 or simply A02."

This should actually be A28, as A*6801 and A*6802 are both alleles of A28 not A02 (even though A02 is closely related in sequence and reactivity).
