We have finalised the recruitment of one of the world's biggest, but clearly the most extended series of families that are genetically enriched for longevity. This sample, for which we have sophisticated phenotypes and bio-materials, provides us with an unique instrument to apply genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic platforms to further unravel the biomolecular pathways of the ageing process.
