Lifespan Observations Database

By: Brady Olsen

We are developing an open platform for lifespan observation data published in the scientific literature. This database stores lifespan measurements under various intervention conditions across a wide range of model organisms.

We are working on opening up our data and workflow process to third party applications. As a result, scientists across the field will be able to create their own programs to fetch and import data in real time. This allows for a tight integration between the lifespan database and 3rd party data pipelines.

The current version of the database is available at http://lifespandb.sageweb.org/
