Novel method clocks yeast longevity

R. John Davenport

Abstract: A stopwatch is the best tool for assessing yeast aging, according to a new study. Timing how long a yeast cell squeezes out offspring is a better gauge of its life span than standard measures, the authors suggest. But other researchers caution that further work is necessary to validate the technique and doubt that it will supplant current approaches.
