  • Aging, The Molecular Concepts - A very large volume of descriptive data on age-related changes in biochemical, physiological and pathological parameters has been accumulated during the past 50 years, particularly for the case of mice and man. (Innovita Research Foundation)

  • Biology of Aging - Infoaging's Biology Center is designed to bring you the latest information on the biological causes of human aging. In each topic you'll find a description of and general information about that issue. You'll also find sections on the latest and future research, as well as links to web and print resources on that topic. (American federation for Aging Research)

  • Genetics In Aging - Genetics in Aging will educate visitors about genetics research, current and possible future discoveries, and how this breakthrough science will impact the aging population. While not a diagnostic tool, Genetics in Aging highlights the importance of genetics in disease susceptibility and the need to design appropriate treatments.  (US Alliance For Aging Research)

  • How We Age: Is It in Our Genes? - The role of genetics in determining the quality and length of human life is a million-dollar question right now. Scientists are discovering bits and pieces of the puzzle, but they're still scratching their heads about how it all fits together. (US Alliance for Aging Research)

  • Replicative Senescence - We are all aware of how our bodies change as we grow older. Like most biological processes, the decline in function of organisms over time is a complex phenomenon. It therefore is not surprising that no two species or individuals within a species age in exactly the same way.  (By Olivia M. Pereira-Smith and Michael J. Bertram)

  • Teacher's Guide: Genetics & Aging - Why teach a unit on aging and genetics? Everyone ages. In the year 2000, one out of four Americans were 50 years old or older. The 75-and-over age group is increasing fastest. More chronic disease and higher health care expenditures will surely follow. Professionally, your students will take charge of the social, medical, and scientific challenges of this "senior boom." (Biorap)
