Molecular Biology of Aging: (Cold Spring Harbor Monograph Series 51)

Research into the causes of aging, and strategies to delay that process, have gained much ground and attention in recent years. This volume covers the major threads in the molecular genetics of aging, including genes that regulate aging, causes of aging, evolutionary theories of aging, and the relationship between diet and aging. Among specific topics covered are calorie restriction, mitochondria, sirtuins, telomeres, stem cells, and cancer. Each chapter is written by one or more leaders in the field, and the book presents the current status of this exciting research area and provides an invaluable source of information in a single volume.
