Presented here are tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) contigs and isolated BACs containing MHC related genes. The sequence contains Extended Class I and Class I and II regions, antigen processing genes, Class II DAA, DAB, DBA and DBB genes and Class II pseudogenes and olfactory receptor genes. The MHC of the wallaby is fragmented, with the primary gene cluster located on chromosome 2q and ten BACs containing class I genes located at six different chromosomal locations.
