GenAge Model Organisms

This section of GenAge features genes associated with ageing and/or longevity in model organisms. You can search or browse all the genes or you may restrict your search to one of the four major biomedical model organisms: mouse (Mus musculus), fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), roundworm (Caenorhabditis elegans), and baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).

Finding Entries

Searching is simple and intuitive. Just type your search query to look for a gene. You can enter one or more words from the gene's name or use the gene's HGNC symbol. Note that the search is case insensitive.
