I'm currently writing a piece of work about telomeres and aging, and wondered if you could share some good papers you've either read or know of.

  • $\begingroup$ This question is not really a good fit for the Q&A format, the topic is rather broad, there is a nearly endless list of possible responses with no real criteria on what is a better answer. If you have any specific questions you encounter in your research you are certainly welcome to ask them. $\endgroup$ – Mad Scientist Jan 16 '13 at 13:20

    $\begingroup$ the editors are kind of a pain here. a good example would be why do we believe that telomeres are related to ageing? or What is the evidence that telomeres are related to aging. $\endgroup$ – shigeta Jan 16 '13 at 21:37
