There it is found that the killer is internationally famous concert pianist John Mikali. This man, Mikali, has been tormented by death and pain all of his life.

Going Solo, By Eric Klinenberg

- The main thesis of Eric Klinenberg’s book, Going Solo, is that living alone is a poorly understood subject by society, even as time went on. Living solo shapes our cities and economies, and how we grow in to our old age (Klinenberg, 2012, p. 16-17).

Identifying Novel Solo-LTRs Within an Individual

Using BLAST I identified the start and end points of this sequence in relation to each of the PCR products of the 3 primers used in the experiment, allowing me to determine the direct repeats and thus pick out the Solo-LTR sequence and pre-integration site....   [tags: Research Analysis]
