Noyce Conference Room
Working Group
 

This event is by invitation only.

Meeting Summary:  This working group will bring together experimentalists and theoreticians to better understand the processes and implications of how single-celled organisms age. General principles will be drawn from high-throughput growth and division data of aging single-cells. Energetics by which they store and process information will be connected with those in larger, multicellular organisms. Some key questions this working group will consider include how the aging clock in a single-celled organism is coupled to that of a more complex organism in which it resides (and vise versa), how aging changes with growth and division, how cells with different age process information differently from the environment, and how aging differ across the tree of life.
