EXTRACT. A part of a writing. In general this is not evidence, because the whole of the writing may explain the part extracted, so as to give it a different sense; but sometimes extracts from public books are evidence, as the extracts from the registers of births, marriages and burials, kept according to law, when the whole of the matter has been extracted which relates to the cause or matter in issue.

The Program is also devoted to the development and application of powerful new imaging tools that permit such studies directly in living cells and functional cell-free extracts. Program members have special expertise in the use of polarized light for analyzing the local arrangement of molecular bonds and fine structure in biological specimens.
