New Method To Identify Genes Related To Aging

Monday, April 20, 2009 - 10:49 in Biology & Nature

Scientists at the University of Liverpool have developed a new method to help researchers identify genes that can help protect the body during the aging process. The team developed a method of analysing genes in multiple ageing tissue types in both animals and humans. The analysis, which included more than five million gene measurements, highlighted the mechanisms used by the body to protect against cellular changes with age that can result in conditions such as muscle degeneration and cognitive aging.  read more
