December 2014 Whole-Genome Sequencing of the World’s Oldest People A group of scientists have performed whole-genome sequencing on 17 of the world’s 74 remaining supercentenarians (110 years or older) to explore the genetic basis underlying extreme human longevity. The entire list of rare protein-altering variants and DNA sequence of all 17 supercentenarian genomes is available as a [...]
