Summary:
How often is it that you find an interesting book that has been published and THEN you also find it online? OK, not too often, but if you go to the site here, you’ll discover an interesting book that HAS been organized in HTML for Web presentation. Titled The Coat Colors of Mice: A Model for Mammalian Gene Action and Interaction, this material provides a well-organized way of looking at the publication of the same name, published by Springer-Verlag. Laid out by chapter, the website also provides visitors with (apparent) access to material not readily available in the printed publication. It is not clear from my examination that EVERYTHING in the book is also on the Web, but I was very impressed by what I saw covered here. An interesting site for mouse researchers.
