During the past decade, model organisms such as Drosophila have made it possible to identify individual genes and pathways that regulate organismal life-span. However, despite the progress made in Drosophila aging research, many longevity studies have often yielded controversial results that can be attributed to differences both in genetic background and in… CONTINUE READING
