Presents the genetic basis of immune responsiveness. Reviews the genetic mechanisms responsible for generation of diversity in the genes for immunoglobulins, the T cell receptor molecules, the major histocompatibility molecules, and other key molecules of the immuno-globulin superfamily. Discusses mechanisms and statistical evaluation of immunogenetic associations with susceptibility or resistance to disease.
