1 Given are the number of sequence variants for each genotype in the left column and the allelic composition as migration speeds in bp of both primer pairs (M + S) used for genotyping in the right column.

2 N: The right column shows the number of identified and dissected survivors out of the 20 fish used per family. The left column shows the survivors as a fraction of the total number of each genotype used at the start of the experiment in segregating families. Order of genotypes corresponds to the MHC genotype column. Different genotypes with identical number of sequence variants have been pooled.

3 Parasite load was measured as the sum of standardized log-transformed infection intensities for all parasite species and family means (± SE) are shown for families with at least two survivors.
