Doc's Report

Doc had encoded an old report of his, but why?

A new report was uploaded to the applied primate webpage under the Our Work section (, a pdf of New Investigative Procedures by A. Gibbons.

Doc appeared to have become paranoid as he encrypted the entire document.

Analysis of the document reveals four italicized strings in the report. Thfbxr bvtbdgttbwb go nv sogeq br iiiw "zpfiqssxmva-hcotqnchlhomo"

Removing these four strings from the document allowed the rest of the document to be decrypted with the key phrase dontdecodethisbit. A statistical analysis review of the cipher text was used to determined the key phrase ( and gave the final decoded text below. Introduction This paper is the third in a series on manuscript writing skills, published in the indian journal of psychiatry. Earlier articles offered suggestions on how to write a good case report and how to read, write, or review a paper on randomized controlled trials. The present paper examines how authors may write a good abstract when preparing their manuscript for a scientific journal or conference presentation. Although the primary target of this paper is the young researcher, it is likely that authors with all levels of experience will find at least a few ideas that may be useful in their future efforts. The abstract of a paper is the only part of the paper that is published in conference proceedings. The abstract is the only part of the paper that a potential referee sees when he is invited by an editor to review a manuscript. The abstract is the only part of the paper that readers see when they search through electronic databases such as pubmed. Finally, most readers will acknowledge, with a chuckle, that when they leaf through the hard copy of a journal, they look at only the titles of the contained papers. If a title interests them, they glance through the abstract of that paper. Only a dedicated reader will peruse the contents of the paper, and then, most often only the introduction and discussion sections. Only a reader with a very specific interest in the subject of the paper, and a need to understand it thoroughly, will read the entire paper. Thus, for the vast majority of readers, the paper does not exist beyond its abstract. For the referees, and the few readers who wish to read beyond the abstract, the abstract sets the tone for the rest of the paper. It is therefore the duty of the author to ensure that the abstract is properly representative of the entire paper. For this, the abstract must have some general qualities. These are listed in table one.

Nothing further is found in this text and analysis of the 4 removed strings began. The strings were too short to be decrypted through analysis and required finding the key phrase in Doc's work which lead to the 4 keywords given at the beginning of the document. Keywords: (mutation), (mRNA), (genetics), (biology) Each of these words, after shifting two letters of the keyword to the front or back, could decrypt one of the four given strings Thfbxr bvtbdgttbwb decrypted with onmutati for Further information go nv sogeq decrypted with namr for to be found br iiiw decrypted with neticsge for on page "zpfiqssxmva-hcotqnchlhomo" decrypted with gybiolo for "treacherous-transmutation" Further information to be found on page "treacherous-transmutation"

This led to a file path on the Applied Primate website of which revealed a picture of Doc and Avila working together in the lab.
