GenAge Model Organisms

This section of GenAge features genes associated with ageing and/or longevity in model organisms. You can search or browse all the genes or you may restrict your search to one of the four major biomedical model organisms: mouse (Mus musculus), fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), roundworm (Caenorhabditis elegans), and baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).

Searching genes

To search for a particular gene please type your search query below. You can use as query the gene's symbol, its name, or the species in which it was identified. The search is case insensitive.

Search genes by species

Please note that a full list of model organisms in GenAge is also available.

Human homologs

You can download human homologs for all of the model organism genes.


You may download a zipped tab-delimited ASCII dataset with all model organisms' genes, derived from the latest stable build of GenAge.
