The German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding the new Jena Centre of Systems Biology of Ageing (JenAge) from October 2009 to September 2014. JenAge is a research endeavour of researchers from several academic institutions in the city of Jena.
Automatic text mining will be used to cope with the ever-increasing flood of age-related scientific documents in a systematic way and to generate plausible hypotheses on ageing and age-related diseases through text analytics. This textual information will be used, together with data from other databases and from the JenAge Centre, to set up a new public database on molecular, cellular and organismic aspects of ageing.
