Molecular Biology of Aging -- new book

Greetings,

Here is some more information about this new book:

Molecular Biology of Aging
Editors: Leonard P. Guarente, Linda Partridge and Douglas C. Wallace (Hardcover - Oct 30, 2007)



Annotation
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. This book covers topics such as calorie restriction, mitochondria, sirtuins, telomeres, stem cells, and cancer.

Book Description
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.
