I am teaching a 2hr lecture on MHC genetics to PhD and MD-PhD graduate 
students, and I have been unsuccessful in my search for a good 
textbook chapter that adequately covers MHC genetics from both a 
historical and molecular perspective.  We are using the Janeway text 
which does a great job with the molecular details, but gives no 
background on history (Ir genes, congenic strains, HLA serology, 
transplantation genetics, etc.) or key techniques (e.g. MLR).  I have 
also checked out the Bill Paul text, which does a great job on all of 
these subjects, but is a little bit too detailed and long for my 
liking.  Does anybody have any other suggestions?

Thanks!
