About this book

Contents include: the role of telomeres in nuclear organisation; telomere DNA sequence and unusual structures formed by telomeric sequences in vitro; replication of telomere sequences by telomerase and how this relates to various DNA sequence features; proteins that bind or interact with telomeres; etc.

"Kipling employs a broad selection and insightful discussion of current reviews and primary references to introduce the reader to telomeres. . .those new to this specialized area will appreciate the author's knowledgeable evaluation of how well the research cited supports certain models of telomere behavior." --Choice
"(Kipling) has produced an incisive and captivating account with material of interest to a broad spectrum of telophiles, from spectators to central players in research....The Telomere is rigorous in summary, bold in speculation, and near comprehensive in scope....a gripping read." --Science
