GenAge: The Ageing Gene Database
Title: GenAge: The Ageing Gene Database
Title abbreviated: GenAge
Creator: Magalhaes, J. P. de; et al.
Abstract: Welcome to GenAge, a manually curated database of genes related to ageing. GenAge is divided into genes related to longevity and/or ageing in model organisms and ageing-related human genes. The section on human ageing-related genes includes the few genes directly related to ageing in humans and the best candidate genes obtained from model organisms. Human genes are thus considerably better annotated and may serve as a starting point for future studies, including genetic association studies, or even for exploiting clinical interventions in human ageing. A list of genes analyzed for their possible association with human longevity, DNA repair genes classified as ageing- or non-ageing-related, and genes commonly differentially expressed during mammalian ageing which were identified based on our ageing microarray meta-analysis, are also available. The schema of GenAge is available online as well as GenAge's statistics. Release notes for the current build are also available. [Information of the supplier]
