Mapping the genes that increase lifespan.
Researchers aiming to slow the aging process have new targets to explore. Following an exhaustive, 10-year effort, scientists have identified 238 genes that, when removed, increase the replicative lifespan of S. cerevisiae yeast cells. This is the first time 189 of these genes have been linked to aging. These results provide new genomic targets that could eventually be used to improve human health.
