Joris' paper has been accepted by AGE and is entitled "Gene set analysis of GWAS data for human longevity highlights the relevance of the insulin/IGF-1 signaling and telomere maintenance pathways".

Genetic variation in genes that play a role in insulin/IGF-1 signaling and telomere maintenance could affect the chance of reaching old age. This is based on the finding by Deelen et al. after comparison of genetic data of unrelated nonagenarians from the Leiden Longevity Study and younger population controls from the Rotterdam Study using a combined analysis of multiple genetic variants.
