Science of Aging Knowledge Environment (SAGE KE)is Now Available

The American Association for the Advancement of Science and the journal Science has released a new website for researchers in the field of aging and related fields. This resource, called the Science of Aging Knowledge Environment (SAGE KE), was funded by the Ellison Medical Foundation. The editor-in-chief of SAGE KE is Dr. George Martin, a member of the Ellison Medical Foundation Scientific Advisory Board. SAGE KE Scientific Advisory Board members are Drs. Steven Austad, Judith Campisi, Paul Coleman, Douglas Wallace, Leonard Guarente, Cynthia Kenyon, Richard Miller, and Phyllis Wise.

SAGE KE was designed to help researchers stay abreast of advancements in this diverse field of study. SAGE features content of interest to many types of researchers, including, among others, human geneticists, molecular geneticists, evolutionary biologists, physiologists, neurobiologists, field biologists, and cell, structural, and molecular biologists working in diverse experimental systems, such as yeast, flies, worms, mice, bats, rats, birds, cultured cells, and primates. In addition, SAGE KE offers researchers an opportunity to create a virtual community where investigators come together for information exchange and discussion.

The SAGE KE features were created on the basis of extensive interviews conducted with researchers in the field of aging. These features include Original Content (Reviews, Perspectives, News, Viewpoint Articles, Case Studies, and Hot Topic Orientations), a SAGE Virtual Journal, Discussion Forums, Personalization Features, a Meetings and Events Calendar, Funding Information, Trainee Resources, Web Resources, a Library of Classic Aging Papers, a Genes Database, and a novel browse-search tool called the Knowledge Map.
