Abstract: The application of high-throughput technologies to aging-related research has the potential to dramatically enhance our understanding of how longevity is determined at a molecular level. Genome-scale studies are being carried out in every major model system used for aging-related research, and new technologies are being developed to rapidly identify mutations or small-molecules that increase life span. A meta-analysis of data derived from genome-wide studies of aging in simple eukaryotes will allow the identification of conserved determinants of longevity that can be tested in mammals.
