Resumen:

Tears of the Cheetah: The Genetic Secrets of Our Animal Ancestors : In Tears of the Cheetah we uncover the genetic "back stories" of exotic species the likes of the giant panda, the humpback whale, the Florida panther, the Serengeti lion, the orangutan of Borneo and Sumatra, and of course the imperiled cheetah - the world's fastest animal that cannot escape its own genetic weaknesses. And with each story of animal research the author draws a human research parallel - how the study of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) has uncovered clues in a cure for HIV, how mapping the genome of the domestic cat solved the murder of a woman in Nova Scotia, how a mutation in Chinese brown mice might help stave off leukemia, and other important animal research that has paved the way toward the future of gene therapy.
