I think the recent Cell papers by Hogquist (a Wash U grad!) and Bevan
concerning the roles of peptide in positive selection are some of the
most significant publications in the last 5 years. Similar work has
also been published by Tonegawa that's quite good, but I still prefer
the Bevan system myself.
Of course, if your club isn't used to discussing the intricacies of
positive selection, these papers can be quite difficult to present.
I think they're worth it, however.
