Hi Extropians,

Following up on Robert Bradbury's thinking... can anyone point me to a list
of genes where common stable genepool variants affect the ageing process...

This would include such things as genes that affect insulin resistance
...but not things like sickle cell... because the latter does not contribute
to the slow decline into the cluster of diseases that we succumb to as we go
past middle age.
