A vicious serial killer is on the loose in Tennessee, and only Becker can bring him down. Every night, Coop reaches for Swann, his beloved punk, and clutches him in the terrible embrace of the prison cell. Afterwards, Swann questions Coop about his crimes—a bloody catechism that touches on every person Coop has ever killed. Of all the stories, Coop’s favorite is the one about the two girls in West Virginia, the girls he killed slowly and left in the abandoned coal mine. He talks about it every night, and when he gets out, Swann will tell his story to the only people who care: the FBI. FBI agent John Becker has made a career out of getting inside the heads of serial killers, but even he can’t understand Coop as well as Swann does. When his old cellmate celebrates his release with a new killing spree, Swann offers to help Becker catch him—but he has a few favors to ask of his own.

As the major task of sequencing the human genome nears completion and the full complement of human genes are catalogued, the task of understanding the normal biological functions of genes and how their alteration leads to diseased states becomes more imperative. In Gene Knockout Protocols, highly skilled investigators with extensive experience in gene targeting and mouse genetics describe their best techniques for the design of targeting constructs and for genetic phenotype analysis. These proven methods contain step-by-step instructions, as well as notes on pitfalls to avoid, and emphasize techniques that are relevant to researchers carrying out gene targeting work. These include embryo transplantation, in vitro embryonic stem cell differentiation, creation of aggregation chimeras, mouse pathology, embryo cryopreservation, and transplantation. Issues such as the use of existing mouse mutation resources and the influence of genetic background and epigenetic effects upon phenotype are also covered. State-of-the-art and highly practical, Gene Knockout Protocols not only constitutes an invaluable source of readily reproducible techniques for those just entering the field of gene targeting, but also a key reference for all genetic researchers today.

The Walk


The Walk
  • Author : Jeffrey Cane Robinson

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De
Detail Book

"The Walk," a meditation on walking and on the literature of walking, ruminates on this pervasive, even commonplace, modern image. It is not so much an argument as a journey along the path of literature, noting the occasions and settings, the pleasures and possibilities of different types of walking--through the country or city, during day or night, alone or with someone--and the literatures--the poems, essays, stories, novels, and diaries--walking has produced. Jeffrey C. Robinson's discussion is less criticism than appreciation: with an autobiographical bent, he leads the reader through Romantic, modern, and contemporary literature to show us the shared pleasures of reading, writing, and walking.
