This book reviews the molecular biology of the gene in relation to aging. The author presents basic information on eukaryotic genes and follows this with details of the changes that occur in their structure and function during aging. He reviews the latest studies being carried out in various laboratories, outlines the gaps and deficiencies in our present knowledge, and suggests the most profitable future areas of research.
