Things to Come
Wow. Weve covered a lot of ground. You guys are real troopers for hanging in there with the Butcher. In the last three issues weve worked our way up from atoms to recombinant insulin. That about does it for the Fundamentals. Oh, theres plenty of basic stuff we havent coveredin fact, weve barely scratched the surface. But well deal with other fundamental stuff as we go along. If youve read all three of the Fundamentals, you have the background you need to follow the Butcher into the Frontiers of Biology. In the next installment, well be talking about something besides the Life Sciences, just to remind people that the Old Quantum Butcher dabbles in many different cuisines. After that, well make our first foray into the Frontiers of Biology by examining how cells kill themselvesone of the hottest topics in science today, and our best hope for curing a whole smorgasbord of human diseases. I do hope youll join us then.
