Trudy Mackay and Robert Anholt were awarded a five-year NIH grant

Trudy Mackay and Robert Anholt were awarded a five year NIH grant from the National Institute of Aging ("Systems Genetics of Drosophila Lifespan") starting September 1, 2013. The aims of this proposal are to integrate data from genome wide association analyses of lifespan and whole genome gene expression at young and old ages to develop a model of causal transcriptional networks affecting Drosophila lifespan, and to functionally test the model.
