Abstract: 

Senescence arises from complex interactions among diverse sets of biological processes. In this talk I describe our efforts to encode knowledge about aging in formal computer-based models that let one visualize causal influences, revise and expand on these hypothesizes, generate explanations of phenomena, and compare predictions to observations. Users can access, examine, and utilize this content over the World Wide Web, letting it serve as a repository for the community's expanding knowledge about aging.
