The HLA System, 1984

  • W. F. Bodmer

Abstract

The HLA region, though only about one thousandth of the total human genome, continues to challenge us with its complexity and diversity. This summary is intended to give a kaleidoscopic view of the system, biased inevitably by my own prejudices, following the four successive meetings - on molecular genetics in Strasbourg; on biochemical analysis, followed by the Histocompatibility Testing Workshop itself, in Munich; and finally, the conference in Vienna.
