Abstract: Whole-genome sequences are now available, and methods have evolved for targeting, in parallel, each gene in a genome, offering for the first time the opportunity to study the entire dynamic network of genes involved in aging. At a recent conference in Hersonissos, Crete, around 200 internationally renowned experts gathered to discuss techniques and emerging results as the science of aging undergoes a shift toward systems biology.
