Key Words: Caenorhabditis elegans • genetics • age • longevity genes • aging genes

Abstract: This article reviews key events in the genetic analysis of aging in the worm. The events are presented in the form of a timeline and include landmark papers, key meetings, and the development of important funding agencies. I also speculate on events that might appear in this timeline if this review were written in the distant future.
