Standard reference samples along with positive controls serve to demonstrate that mtDNA sequence analysis is being performed appropriately (see Szibor et al. 2003a). The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed two Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) to aid in confirming sequencing results with mtDNA (Levin et al. 1999, Levin et al. 2003). Information is available for the entire mtGenome on three samples (SRM 2392) and the cell line HL-60 (SRM 2392-I).

This book discusses the futility of curing stammering by common means. It traces various attempts at curing stammering in the past and how wasteful these attempt were, until he discovered a simple program to cure it. The book presents the life of Benjamin Nathaniel Bogue and his struggles with the handicap. Bogue devotes a great deal of text to explain the handicap of stammering, its effects on the body and psychology of the sufferer, and its cure.
