Comparative Analysis of Aging Genomes


The possibilities for further unraveling the mechanisms of biological aging through the use of new technologies such as next-generation sequencing are rapidly increasing. Comparative genomic analysis has emerged as a powerful tool to study the genetic basis of aging by comparing the genomes of different species or individuals at different age stages. At CD BioSciences, our team of expert biologists and bioinformaticians has a wealth of knowledge in the field of aging research and comparative genomics analysis.

Overview of Aging Genome Comparative Analysis Services

Comparative genomic analysis between representative species of aging

CD BioSciences utilizes state-of-the-art techniques and tools to perform comparative genomic analysis between representative species of aging. We analyze the genomes of different organisms to identify conserved aging-associated genes and functional elements. By comparing the genetic profiles of these species, we can elucidate the evolutionary forces that have shaped the aging process and identify common molecular mechanisms that regulate aging across species.

Comparative genomic analysis of the same species, different age stages

We also offer services to study the genomic changes that occur within the same species at different age stages. This approach allows us to uncover age-related genetic variations and identify genes that are differentially expressed during aging.

Comparative Analysis Components of Aging Genomes

Using bioinformatics tools and pipelines, we compare the genomic data obtained from the different samples. By comparing protein sequences or gene locations and relative order across multiple species, we help our clients uncover gene loss, duplication, and horizontal transfer. We elucidate the molecular genetic basis of aging in different species by identifying conserved genes between species (to discover species similarities) or genes that characterize each organism (to discover species differences).

Our services include common analyses, gene family clustering to obtain orthologous genes, phylogenetic analyses, estimation of species divergence times, identification of gene fusions and gene clusters, reconstruction of gene clusters in signaling pathways, gene family contraction and expansion, and genome-wide covariate comparisons. This analysis allows us to identify genes, regulatory regions, and pathways that are associated with aging. We generate comprehensive reports that highlight the key findings and their implications for aging research.
