New genome-wide methods bring more power to yeast as a model organism.

Abstract:

:Recent developments in genetic research using Saccharomyces cerevisiae have provided rapid new methods for identifying the genes that control cellular responses to treatment with a wide variety of agents, including chemicals and radiation. This significantly increases the power of yeast as a model system for studying human cellular responses to these agents, and for identifying human genes that are important in DNA repair and cancer.

  • Small molecule SIRT1 activators for the treatment of aging and age-related diseases.

    abstract::Recent studies in mice have identified single molecules that can delay multiple diseases of aging and extend lifespan. In theory, such molecules could prevent dozens of diseases simultaneously, potentially extending healthy years of life. In this review, we discuss recent advances, controversies, opportunities, and ch...
