What is the HLA Diversity in 1000 Genomes Samples?

HLA diversity is not something which has been studied by the 1000 Genomes Project directly.

Pierre-Antoine Gourraud, Jorge Oksenberg and colleages at UCSF carried out a HLA typing assay on DNA sourced from Coriell for 1000 Genomes samples.

Their work assessing HLA Diversity is publised in PLOS ONE

HLA diversity in the 1000 Genome Dataset
PLoS One. 2014 Jul 2;9(7)

The HLA Types for the individuals assayed are available from the 1000 Genomes FTP site in
