New technique multiplies life span in simple organisms

...terintuitive experiment has resulted in one of the longest recorded life-span extensions in any organism and opened a new door for anti-aging research in humans. Scientists have known for several years that an extra copy of the SIR2 gene can promote longevity in yeast, worms and fruit flies. That finding w...

Researchers make long DNA 'wires' for future medical and electronic devices
