The last years have marked an incredible expansion of information concerning the molecular biology of immunity. We now understand general features of the organization, rearrangements and diversification of antibody genes, and, in the last year, several groups have isolated the genes encoding transplantation antigens. This paper will summarize recent developments concerning our current knowledge of organization, expression and diversification of antibody genes as well as the organization of genes encoding transplantation antigens in both mouse and human.
