Summary and Info
Aging Methods and Protocols presents a number of state-of-the-art protocols, described by recognized experts in their field, which are being used to further our understanding of the aging process. These detailed biochemical, physical and molecular biology techniques are combined to provide an excellent resource for researchers and scientists from a wide variety of disciplines. Also included is a presentation of two case studies that focus on the role of dietary restriction in life span extension, as well as ways to establish and utilize transgenic animals for the elucidation of the molecular aspects of aging. This book is an invaluable source of state-of-the-art research protocols with broad scientific applicability and will interest scientific researchers, clinicians involved inIn this work, experts detail key biochemical, analytical, and molecular techniques for the investigation of ageing at the cellular, tissue, organ, and whole system levels.
