About this book


The past few years have seen rapid progress in apoptosis research. This volume deals with many of the recent advances made in uncovering the molecular and cellular basis of apoptosis, with particular emphasis to the role of apoptosis in normal biological processes and the mechanisms involved.
The articles published in this volume are written by leading experts in the field and should be a vital resource for researchers in biomedicine.
