Applied Muscle Biology and Meat Science

Many of the difficulties that meat and animal scientists face when attempting to address specific problems–such as stress susceptibility and poor meat quality in swine–stem from a lack of understanding of the underlying biological mechanisms that drive muscle growth, metabolism, and its conversion to meat. This book provides current knowledge about skeletal muscle and meat, and serves as a p

Medical Isotope Production Without Highly Enriched Uranium

This book is the product of a congressionally mandated study to examine the feasibility of eliminating the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU2) in reactor fuel, reactor targets, and medical isotope production facilities. The book focuses primarily on the use of HEU for the production of the medical isotope molybdenum-99 (Mo-99), whose decay product, technetium-99m3 (Tc-99m), is used in the majori
