Whole Genome Sequencing of the World’s Oldest People

Project description:

Supercentenarians (110 years or older) are the world’s oldest people. Seventy four are alive worldwide, with twenty two in the United States. We performed whole-genome sequencing on 17 supercentenarians to explore the genetic basis underlying extreme human longevity. The DNA sequence of all 17 supercentenarian genomes is available as a resource to assist the discovery of the genetic basis of extreme longevity in future studies. This study was a collaboration between Stanford University (Dr. Stuart K. Kim), the Institute of Systems Biology (Dr. Leroy Hood), and the Supercentenarian Research Foundation (Dr. L. Stephen Coles).
