Josiah Sutton was convicted of rape. He was five inches shorter and 65 pounds lighter than the suspect described by the victim, but at trial a lab analyst testified that his DNA was found at the crime scene. His case looked like many others—arrest, swab, match, conviction. But there was just one problem—Sutton was innocent. We think of DNA forensics as an infallible science that catches the bad guys and exonerates the innocent. But when the science goes rogue, it can lead to a gross miscarriage of justice. Erin Murphy exposes the dark side of forensic DNA testing: crime labs that receive little oversight and produce inconsistent results; prosecutors who push to test smaller and poorer-quality samples, inviting error and bias; law-enforcement officers who compile massive, unregulated, and racially skewed DNA databases; and industry lobbyists who push policies of “stop and spit.” DNA testing is rightly seen as a transformative technological breakthrough, but we should be wary of placing such a powerful weapon in the hands of the same broken criminal justice system that has produced mass incarceration, privileged government interests over personal privacy, and all too often enforced the law in a biased or unjust manner. Inside the Cell exposes the truth about forensic DNA, and shows us what it will take to harness the power of genetic identification in service of accuracy and fairness.

The Cell

Author: John C. Miller
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9781401397289
Release Date: 2002-09-01
Genre: History

In The Cell, John Miller, an award-winning journalist and coanchor of ABC's 20/20, along with veteran reporter Michael Stone and Chris Mitchell, takes readers back more than 10 years to the birth of the terrorist cell that later metastasized into al Qaeda's New York operation. This remarkable book offers a firsthand account of what it is to be a police officer, an FBI agent or a reporter obsessed with a case few people will take seriously. It contains a first-person account of Miller's face-to-face meeting with bin Laden and provides the first full-length treatment to piece together what led up to the events of 9/11, ultimately delivering the disturbing answer to the question: Why, with all the information the intelligence community had, was no one able to stop the 9/11 attacks?

Measuring Calcium and Calmodulin Inside and Outside Cells

Author: Ole H. Petersen
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 3540675361
Release Date: 2001-03-13
Genre: Science

The study of signal transduction mechanisms has become one of the most important branches of biomedical science, indispensable to understanding the normal actions of hormones, neurotransmitters and other extracellular signaling molecules as well as many pathophysiological processes, including inflammation and cancer. In this volume, the various techniques for measuring Ca2+ in the cytosol, in the various organelles, and in the immediate surroundings of individual cells are described in practical detail by experts. Also included is a chapter on tracking calmodulin inside cells using fluorescence technology. A Springer Lab Manual

Genre: Juvenile Nonfiction

Cells are the building blocks of life. According to Cell Theory, all living things are made of cells; cells are the basic unit of life; and all cells come from other cells. The nucleus of a cell has chromosomes made of DNA, which make each individual unique.

Integral Biomathics

Author: Plamen L. Simeonov
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642281112
Release Date: 2012-07-13
Genre: Computers

Perhaps the most distinct question in science throughout the ages has been the one of perceivable reality, treated both in physics and philosophy. Reality is acting upon us, and we, and life in general, are acting upon reality. Potentiality, found both in quantum reality and in the activity of life, plays a key role. In quantum reality observation turns potentiality into reality. Again, life computes possibilities in various ways based on past actions, and acts on the basis of these computations. This book is about a new approach to biology (and physics, of course!). Its subtitle suggests a perpetual movement and interplay between two elusive aspects of modern science — reality/matter and potentiality/mind, between physics and biology — both captured and triggered by mathematics — to understand and explain emergence, development and life all the way up to consciousness. But what is the real/potential difference between living and non-living matter? How does time in potentiality differ from time in reality? What we need to understand these differences is an integrative approach. This book contemplates how to encircle life to obtain a formal system, equivalent to the ones in physics. Integral Biomathics attempts to explore the interplay between reality and potentiality.

Inside the Human Cell

Author: Colleen Fleshman
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 1512240966
Release Date: 2015-05-20

Every human body is composed of millions of microscopic cells, each one functioning in an interdependent network that allows us to survive. The inside of the cell is a complex machine designed to produce energy, make proteins with a wide variety of functions, and create new cells. Though the cells are tiny, they're critical to life. The human cell is fascinating in its complexity and ability to work in tandem with other cells. Understanding the function of cells goes a long way toward understanding how the human body works. This book is a brief introduction to the human cell. It's written for everyone, regardless of your previous knowledge of science or the human body. This series won't make you a doctor, but it certainly will help you understand your body.
