Chromosome 6 by Robin Cook


by Robin Cook

"Chromosome 6" is a science thriller about some scientists in Africa that are using cloning to create subhuman monkeys using bonobos so that their body parts can harvested for the specific human who is matched with the animal, and about a medical examiner named Jack Stapleton who discovers at the morgue in New York City while working that something strange is going on. He notices during an autopsy that a man had had a liver transplant but for some reason he has trouble finding out where and when and also the man didn't need anti - immunity drugs, in other words the body did not try to reject the liver. Jack digs deep to find the answer and the two plots finally connect. I felt I was educated as I read the book, it was very well detailed with scientific and medical information, but not boring, book keeps a good pace.
An exciting read.

Уникальная операция по замене "хромосомы-6", имеющейся у обезьян, на человеческую - удалась. Теперь животных можно использовать как идеальных доноров для пересадки органов людям. Но почему это поразительное медицинское открытие окружено тайной? Почему пересадка органов проводится в засекреченной клинике на западе Африки? И наконец, почему обезьян-доноров содержат под усиленной охраной на маленьком острове? Микробиолог Кевин Маршалл, автор идеи уникальной "пересадки" хромосомы, проникает на островок - и понимает: его открытие уже повлияло на будущее человечества и над его собственной жизнью нависла смертельная угроза.
