Snell's studies of histocompatibility in mice resulted in the identification
of the H-2 gene complex and subsequently to the recognition of the major
histocompatibility complex (MHC), an assortment of antigens (substances
that cause the production of antibodies) that is common to the genetic
makeup of all vertebrates. Snell was coauthor of Histocompatibility
with Dausset and Stanley Nathenson in 1976.
