Aging, or senescence, is the major cause of suffering, disease, and death in modern times. With the worldwide graying of the population, we are now aging for a longer period of time than ever before. Gerontology, and its sub-field biogerontology in particular, is the science that studies the aging process to prevent age-related disease and degeneration, preserve health, and prolong human life. senescence.info aims to highlight the importance of research on aging and give an overview of current knowledge on the biology and genetics of aging, including anti-aging therapies, models and theories of aging.
a curated database of ageing and life history in animals, including extensive longevity records. AnAge was primarily developed for comparative biology studies, in particular studies of longevity and ageing
