About the JenAge Information Centre

The JenAge Information Centre provides various information on ageing and systems biology.

It contains the following sections:

All tables can be searched individually by entering a search term in the input field at the top right of the table. The search starts after typing the first letter of the search term. Table rows that don't match the search term are hidden (temporarily).

The rows in each table can also be sorted by clicking on a column header. Multiple columns can be used for sorting by holding the "Shift key" down while clicking on a second or third header. The sort direction (indicated by a red arrowhead) can be switched by clicking again.

The displayed columns can be chosen individually after clicking on the "Show / hide columns" button at the top right of the table.

The search, sort, and display options are only available if Javascript is enabled in your browser.

Development and maintenance

Development and maintenance of the JenAge information resources is done by members of the Sühnel Lab at the Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) located in Jena / Germany. The resources are the joint work of Rolf Hühne (rhuehne@fli-leibniz.de), Torsten Thalheim (thalheim@fli-leibniz.de) and Jürgen Sühnel (jsuehnel@fli-leibniz.de). In addition, Kerstin Wagner (rake@fli-leibniz.de), member of the FLI's Public Relations Group, and Jana Schleicher (janasch@fli-leibniz.de) have contributed to the content of the Information Centre.
