    • Genome-wide linkage analysis for human longevity: Genetics of Healthy Aging Study. 

      Ayers, KL; Beekman, M; Bezrukov, V; Blanché, H; Christensen, Kaare; Christiansen, L; Cordell, HJ; ... (41 authors) (Aging Cell, 2013-04)
      Clear evidence exists for heritability of human longevity, and much interest is focused on identifying genes associated with longer lives. To identify such longevity alleles, we performed the largest genome-wide linkage ...
    • Novel loci and pathways significantly associated with longevity. 

      Bae, H; Bolund, L; Cao, H; Chen, H; Chi, L-Q; Christensen, Kaare; Christiansen, L; ... (57 authors) (Sci Rep, 2016-02-25)
      Only two genome-wide significant loci associated with longevity have been identified so far, probably because of insufficient sample sizes of centenarians, whose genomes may harbor genetic variants associated with health ...
