Parkin Lecture Aging Mind & Brain Initiative Matt Kaeberlein, PhD Department of Pathology, University of Washington We all learn at a young age that “one dog year equals seven human years”.  While this may be a bit of “fuzzy math”, it is true that dogs age about seven times faster than people do.  Why is that?  And why is it that, just like in people, not all dogs age at the same rate?  Big dogs age faster than small dogs.  Some breeds are prone to cancer while others are prone to ...

This workshop introduces you to the Gene Ontology (GO) framework. Publications in molecular biology mostly lack a unified language to describe their hypotheses and findings; written in ‘natural’ language, they may be easier to read but are often difficult to compare. GO, in contrast, is a controlled language that enables describing molecular functions, cellular components, and biological processes across species. Thus, it highlights similarities between observations, avoids ambiguity, and fa...
