For a scientist at a nuclear weapons research lab, Ken Turteltaub seems remarkably unmoved by the fact that his lab is teeming with mice. But these are no regular rodents. These are specially engineered creatures Turteltaub is using to hunt cancer-causing agents. One day, Turteltaub and his colleagues hope, the mice will track down something else: research revenues. After 40 years of honing the nation's military edge, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are on a new mission.
