The aim of this module is to provide an integrated background in immunogenetics, the study of the interrelation between immunity to disease and genetic makeup. Students will study genetics of the immunoglobulins, the genetics of B- cell and T-cell receptors, MHC, HLA molecules and polymorphism of HLA genes, the pathogenesis of a chronic inflammation, or autoimmune or infectious disease responses.  The course will cover methods of study in immunogenetics, particularly the development of B and T cells.
