Biological aspects of aging are interdisciplinary topics in gerontology and geriatrics. Aging begins at the cellular level and then spread to tissues and organs. Knowledge of mechanisms guiding aging at the cellular level improves our understanding of what happens to the human organism. It is generally accepted that the organism aging is accompanied by accumulation of mutations and genetic instability.
