April 16, 2015 Abstract Genetic studies indicate that aging is modulated by a great number of genetic pathways. We have used Drosophila longevity and stress assays to test a multipath intervention strategy. To carry out this strategy, we supplemented the flies with herbal extracts (SC100) that are predicted to modulate the expression of many genes […]
Aging is not simply an accumulation of damage or inappropriate higher-order signaling. Aging occurs because of the extensive absence of adaptive genomic information
Evolutionary biology provides the only cogent, formally developed, and experimentally corroborated theory for biological ageing. In this essay, we supply a brisk run through the highlights of evolutionary research on the biology of ageing.
