Book Description

Using a new, integrative approach, Molecular Basis of Aging describes the aging phenomenon within mammalian organisms from the perspective of changes in information storage and coordination between hierarchical orders of structure. This unique approach provides the reader with a thorough insight into the evolution of molecular, cellular, tissue, and organ systems and processes in mammals. This informative volume contains up-to-date reviews of:
