From Microscopes to Multi-omics: The Evolution of Single Cell Genomic Technologies

We can trace the history of single-cell analysis back to the 17th century, when Robert Hooke and Antonie van Leeuwenhoek looked through their microscopes and first described the cell. Centuries later, genetic tools now allow researchers to study the genome of single cells at unprecedented scale and resolution. Read more...

What makes longevity run in families? Hint: Not good genes!

Common folklore has it that longevity is in your genes. We all know people who got old and whose parents and grandparents also lived to very ripe ages. There is certainly some truth to this notion, as scientists have shown that the Alzheimer-and Cardiovascular Disease associated APOE4 allele is mostly missing in very old long-lived people, and the protective APOE2 allele is more frequent. More than 10 SNPs have reproducibly been found associated with living longer. Read more...
