Aging-kb: A knowledge base for the study of the aging process is a 2011 journal article written in English by Becker K.G., Holmes K.A., Zhang Y. and published in Mechanisms of Ageing and Development.

[edit] Abstract

As the science of the aging process moves forward, a recurring challenge is the integration of multiple types of data and information with classical aging theory while disseminating that information to the scientific community. Here we present AGING-kb, a public knowledge base with the goal of conceptualizing and presenting fundamental aspects of the study of the aging process. Aging-kb has two interconnected parts, the Aging-kb tree and the Aging Wiki. The Aging-kb tree is a simple intuitive dynamic tree hierarchy of terms describing the field of aging from the general to the specific. This enables the user to see relationships between areas of aging research in a logical comparative fashion. The second part is a specialized Aging Wiki which allows expert definition, description, supporting information, and documentation of each aging keyword term found in the Aging-kb tree. The Aging Wiki allows community participation in describing and defining concepts and terms in the Wiki format. This aging knowledge base provides a simple intuitive interface to the complexities of aging.
