Correction to: Immunogenetics

  https://doi.org/10.1007/s00251-018-1080-4

The authors regret that an error was present in the Fig. 5 of the above article; some digits in the DRB allele-designations in Fig. 5 have been lost, and are incorrectly presented by only two digits. The correct allele-designations should have been four (or six) digits. The correct Figure is shown as follows:
Fig. 5

The MHC class II haplotypes present in the cohort of BPRC chimpanzees. The DRB haplotypes are extracted from an earlier study (de Groot et al. 2009). Two shades of grey indicate the separate DRB haplotypes, because for some of them more than one DRA/DQ/DP combination was observed. Each class II allele in the P. t. verus group received a colour, to illustrate the recombination. N represents the number of animals in which a haplotype is found. All DRA/DQ/DP combinations are unique, with the exception of six sets, as in indicated from A up to F. The founding animals are listed, and those that were analysed in this study are presented in bold face. The four haplotypes of the P. t. schweinfurthii animals, Noah and Niko, are deduced and are not confirmed by segregation, as indicated by the dashed lines. The order of genes in the figure is arbitrary and may not represent the actual order on the chromosome. Nt is not typed
