Analysis of genes that control aging in C. elegans.

Dr. Kenyon believes that the study of short-lived mutants of C. elegans may lead to the identification of important life-span regulating genes. She proposes to identify such genes. She will also import human genes into C. elegans short-lived mutants in order to see which of theses genes best compensate for the lost worm gene.
