An Immortal Life, The Math Book and The Geek Atlas

 

As I mentioned in a previous post, my father's recent illness and passing wreaked havoc on my ability to finish any of the many books I had started to completion. I have every intention of getting fully back to my reviewing hobby!  I was fortunate to have one book that could hold my attention during this time and that was a very special sneak peek at Rebecca Skloot's upcoming book called The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.  The main reason that this topic, about the first immortalized human cell culture line (HeLa cells), was able to captivate me is that it is so intimately related to my day in, day out work here at U of I.  I also thoroughly enjoyed the human interest storyline as well and I am confident that it will also be a satisfying and enlightening read for everyone else. Essentially, I am highly recommending that you go out and BUY that book as soon as it comes out. In fact, you can pre-order and I think that's a smart idea, too!

 I just had the opportunity two review two very, very fun books.  Any science/math lover will really get a kick out of them.  The Math Book by Clifford Pickover and The Geek Atlas by John Graham-Cumming

You will be happy you checked these books out!

I also made another gummy bear video about digesting them in the protease trypsin.  It is a bit long, but I think I cover many salient biochemical concepts with respect to the functioning of enzymes.



Until next time! 

Kindly, Joanne
