"At the heart of Karyotype is the Beauty of Loulan, a woman who lived four thousand years ago, her body preserved in the cool , dry sands of the Taklamakan Desert. ... The Beauty of Loulan becomes a symbol of the ephemerality of human genetic and cultural texts, and our chances for survival."--Page [4] of cover.

: “We watch bright / threads of her dna unwound / and read from left to right // and learn her history. But where is she, /in the blue-stained karyogram, / this desiccated woman // this Beauty of Loulan, this beauty?”
