Need raw data

Postby mith » Thu Jan 20, 2005 8:48 pm

I'm doing a 4000 word research paper that requires me to analyze info to produce new conclusions. Ideally the peeps who burdened me with this task would like me to do actual experiments. The problem is, my topic concerns aging. I'm thinking of a research question such as : How much do genes affect aging? The problem is I have no idea where I could get raw data to analyze(I already have mortality.org). And of course my thesis is not made yet :-D.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have no specific info but i think you can make a search on some words on the internet. As i remember when i was searching something I came across with some info related to your topic. (I think it has a relation.)

I think you can make searches on the words: "senescence" (means aging) and "apoptosis" (as a senescent (old) cell goes through the process of apoptosis(i mean normal cells not cancer cells))

U may read online journals about this subject and U may draw cumulative conclusions ........

do you have any websites/ journal databases? I've been using google scholar and I'm only getting summaries from the databases. I've also used the schools Ebsco database.

I have seen them on google scholar search but for some reason I'm only seeing the abstract/ summary. Anyway to see the raw data they collected?

Try Pubmed at <http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/>
You could search in the literature, but some journals need a subscription to read the complete papers. But more and more are giving free access to papers more than 6 month or 1 year old. You may need to go to the publisher website (the link is not always provided in pubmed) and retrieve the paper from here.

You could also search the sequences in theProtein and Nucleotides databases (molecular database). You will need to get used to the formatting of raw sequence, but these data are freely accessible

Good luck

Update: Alright guys, I've formulated a preliminary research question.
"To what extent can the effects of ageing be minimized?"

Yes, I've already been told that this topic is waaaay too broad. One suggestion I got was to investigate the effects of cellular ageing on overall ageing....I'm confused as to whether they are both the same.

Second, I've research pubmed and others and I've only found a few pdf files on one of them longevity websites. They might be of use. I plan to incorporate reliability theory in there somewhere.

I also found some sort of genomic websitehttp://genomics.senescence.info/. Looks promising but don't know how it works.
Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated.

Try to use NCBI.

You can use NCBI database at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov to search for sequence. Choose Search Nucleotide for: mortality AND Homo sapiens [Organism], or some thing else. Maybe you have to write script to get sequence automatically. Good luck.
