Looking for a synopsis of the genes that control early development of the thymus, the gland in the neck where T cells grow up? Need a rundown on the different kinds of anemia? Page through Molecular Hematology from M.D. researcher Daniele Focosi of the University of Pisa in Italy. The outline-style primer teems with information on the layout of the circulatory system and the workings of its cells. You can bore into a lymph node, for example, or browse a chart summarizing the major blood enzymes. Or read up on leukemia and other diseases in which blood cells go awry.
