Histocompatibility genes of the mouse.J. nat. Cancer Inst., 20, 787- 824; 21, 843-75, 1958.
Snell made fundamental contributions to transplantation genetics. At his suggestion genes governing transplantation were called histocompatibility genes and Gorer’s Antigen II became Histocompatibility-2 (H-2). Snell shared the Nobel Prize with B. Benacerraf and J. Dausset in 1980.

The H-2 locus of the mouse: observations and speculations concerning its comparative genetics and its polymorphism.Folia biol. (Praha), 14, 335-58, 1968.
Antigen II, discovered by Gorer (No. 2576.5), was studied by Snell and became known as the product of the H-2 locus, the fundamental locus in the history of mammalian transplant biology.
