Studying Ageing and Disease in Laboratory Mice: A Handbook reviews mouse models commonly used in studies on ageing. The book highlights the advantages and disadvantages of different strategies and discusses their relevance to disease susceptibility. In addition to addressing the genetics and phenotypic analysis of mice, examples of models of delayed or accelerated ageing and their modulation by caloric restriction are discussed. With the focus on laboratory mice models, the book provides a toolbox of techniques which can be used to consistently assess their health span. Topics discussed include assessing ageing in rodents, available models, and experimental plans and protocols.

This book is valuable resource for researchers, scientists and professionals, but will also be ideal for students and practitioners who wish to broaden their knowledge in the field.
