Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it. --Samuel Johnson
Welcome to Science's SAGE KE, an online resource for researchers in the field of aging. Our mission is threefold: to deliver high-quality information about aging and related disciplines; to provide tools for more efficient searching and information retrieval; and to create a setting where researchers feel encouraged to share data and engage in discussion. Because SAGE KE can be accessed from your desktop, it has the potential to change the way you stay abreast of current research and events, and collaborate with other researchers from around the world.
We strive to cover advances on basic mechanisms of aging and age-related diseases rather than purely clinical research. In addition, we endeavor to alert our community to developments in areas that are highly relevant for research on aging, such as new methods for single cell analysis of gene expression and major findings on DNA repair, mitochondrial biology, chromatin modification, protein turnover, somatic mutation, etc.
Science's SAGE KE is the third in a series of Knowledge Environments developed by Science and AAAS, following the Signal Transduction Knowledge Environment (STKE) and AIDScience. Because of the vast breadth of the "aging" field, AAAS felt that this research area was an ideal focus for its third Knowledge Environment. This field includes a wide variety of researchers working on diverse biological processes in numerous species. There is no single meeting that all researchers in the field of aging attend, nor is there any one journal in which everyone publishes. SAGE KE offers an opportunity to create a virtual community where investigators in the field can come together for information exchange and discussion. AAAS received funding for SAGE KE from the Ellison Medical Foundation.
In Chinese Buddhism, the lotus or sea rose symbolizes both immortality and purity. The fruit, flower, and stalk of the plant represent the past, present, and future. In SAGE KE's logo, the flower is in full bloom. The bursting petals and leaves encircle a face to illustrate human life at its fullest potential--pushing mortality to its limits. The design also embodies the notion of a pure existence, of living in the best way possible. --Description by Jennifer Toy
