The species Nothobranchius furzeri possesses several characteristics which make it a particularly attractive model system for age research: Inbred line GRZ shows a captive lifespan of only three months. There is large variation in life-history traits between different isolates. Lifespan can be prolonged by environmental manipulations and drugs. The aim of this website is to provide information on N. furzeri and to foster the development of a group of interest which aims at creating a consortium to establish this organism as a model for developmental and age research.
The sequencing of several bird genomes and the anticipated sequencing of many more provided the impetus to develop a model organism database devoted to the taxonomic class: Aves. Birds provide model organisms important to the study of neurobiology, immunology, genetics, development, oncology, virology, cardiovascular biology, evolution and a variety of other life sciences. Many bird species are also important to agriculture, providing an enormous worldwide food source worldwide. Genomic approaches are proving invaluable to studying traits that affect meat yield, disease resistance, behavior, and bone development along with many other factors affecting productivity. In this context, BirdBase will serve both biomedical and agricultural researchers.
