Bioinformatics in aging research: a workshop report

Rejuvenation Res. 2010 Dec;13(6):763-7. doi: 10.1089/rej.2010.1125. Epub 2011 Jan 4.


Evidence is accumulating that the first genuine antiaging interventions (e.g., approved pharmaceutical, nutriceutical, and stem-cell-based therapies) will become available within the next decades. Model organism data, next-generation sequencing, and further advances call for sophisticated large-scale data analysis. To present the state-of-the art and to talk about upcoming tasks and challenges in the bioinformatics and systems biology of aging-related data, a workshop on Bioinformatics in Ageing Research convened leading experts from Europe on May 4-5, 2010, in Rostock/Warnemünde. This meeting report summarizes talks and gives some outlook into future developments.
