Handbook of the Biology of Aging, Ninth Edition provides a comprehensive synthesis and review of the latest and most important advances and themes in modern biogerontology. The book focuses on the trend of ‘big data’ approaches in the biological sciences, presenting new strategies to analyze, interpret and understand the enormous amounts of information being generated through DNA sequencing, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomics methodologies applied to aging related problems. Sections cover longevity pathways and interventions that modulate aging, innovative tools that facilitate systems-level approaches to aging research, the mTOR pathway and its importance in age-related phenotypes, and much more.
- Assists researchers in keeping abreast of research and clinical findings outside their subdiscipline
- Helps medical, behavioral and social gerontologists understand what basic scientists and clinicians are discovering
- Includes new chapters on genetics, evolutionary biology, bone aging, and epigenetic control
- Examines the diverse research being conducted in the study of the biology of aging
Clinicians, researchers, and students in gerontology, developmental psychology, psychiatry, biology, and other related health care professions tasked with caring for the aging population
