      A List of Researchable Topics for Biology. A list of researchable topics for biology students starts with several interesting biological topics concerning sociological perspective and ethical issues. The most debatable subjects are abortion, human cloning, genetic researches and the new ethics that should be created to resolve these issues. Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 61) Log in to check access we became increas­ ingly cognizant of the commonality of our research problems de­ spite our separate perspectives. The idea for this symposium, therefore, grew from our aware­ ness that the underlying problem of the biological.

    Theory of senescence. Medawar's lecture An unsolved problem of biology (published ) addressed ageing and senescence, and he begins by defining both terms as follows: We obviously need a word for mere ageing, and I propose to use 'ageing' itself for just that purpose. Everything we do enables the learner to achieve more - from publishing bestselling textbooks to partnering with educators and institutions to help deliver personalised learning.

    The book includes an explanation of the suppression of cellular senescence in glioblastoma brain tumor. Taking a broad and varied perspective, this volume was . AN EVOLUTIONARY PERSPECTIVE ON SENESCENCE At the heart of gerontology, there is an important scientific problem that is now ripe for solution. The problem is: "Why does the phenome­ non of senescence exist?" Not why, in the sense of the mechanisms that cause damage. Gerontology has studied dozens of such mechanisms and.

The problem is: “Why does the phenomenon of senescence exist?” Not why, in the sense of the mechanisms that cause damage. Gerontology has studied dozens of such mechanisms and the resulting mass of information has proved most difficult to integrate.

Science Books for Beginners. The first book I read about aging was Leonard Hayflick's "How and Why We Age," and I still think it offers a good introduction to the biology of aging. Although Hayflick emphasizes his own field of cellular senescence, he covers different areas and you have a background in biology, then this is an excellent introductory book to the biology of aging.

Classic senescence theories yield no clear answer, as they tend to assume that the zero age at birth is undisputable and that senescence is a problem of the soma only—a clear reflection of our general tendency to build theories with a life history in mind that resembles our own, whether or not it is commonly found in nature (Kokko, ).

There is now considerable evidence that cellular senescence is an underlying mechanism of aging and age-related conditions. Cellular senescence is a process in which cells lose the ability to divide and damage neighboring cells by the factors they secrete, collectively referred to as the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP).

Challenging traditional theories on the evolution of senescence, this book introduces an interdisciplinary perspective, giving a broad overview of new insights and cutting-edge research from many scientific fields.

It will be of interest to students and biologists interested in ageing research, life history traits and populations. Ionizing Radiation (IR), especially at high doses, induces cellular senescence in exposed cultures. IR also induces “bystander effects” through signals released from irradiated cells, and these effects include many of the same outcomes observed following direct exposure.

Here, we investigate if radiation can cause senescence through a bystander mechanism. Control cultures were. Publisher description: Much research on the biology of senescence is on cell-lines, nematodes or fruit flies, that are only of peripheral relevance to the problems encountered in humans.

Cells sense telomere length shortening and respond with cell cycle arrest at a certain size of telomeres referring to the “Hayflick limit.” In addition to regulating the cell replicative senescence, telomere biology plays a fundamental role in regulating the chronological post-mitotic cell ageing.
