DNA Repair and Aging

David Jaillet


DNA repair is a very important interest in many research fields because DNA problems come up thousands of times daily in a cell and many problems route from it. DNA repair refers to a collection of processes by which a cell identifies and corrects damage to the DNA molecules that encode its genome. The major question is to see if aging has any correlation with DNA repair efficiency. There has been a lot of very interesting studies stating how DNA repair is correlating with the central nervous system, and its link to cancer. It is very important to keep having experiments and studies done with DNA repair so we can try and learn more about the subject. It is getting easier and easier to get more in depth due to many recent advances in technology where the scientists can get a better look at the DNA repair system. The problem that is still getting a lot of people in this field of research is trying to find different pathways for DNA repair mechanisms to fix mutations that lead to cancer. The more information they obtain the better understanding we have on the subject.
