Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism

Created on Dec. 16, 2012, 9:40 p.m. by Hevok & updated by Hevok on May 2, 2013, 5:03 p.m.

A single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP; snip) is DNA variation of single nucleotide that differs between members of a Species. The different variants are called alleles.

Numerous genetic variations are associated with aging and lifespan-determination.

Identify all the genetic factors with an association to lifespan-limitation. For this consult repositories such as openSNP [http://opensnp.org] and query their database for terms like aging, lifespan and longevity. Integrate these associations with Denigma's Lifespan Factors with the use of Classifications such as Longevity-Associated.
