How cells age: genes are read faster but less accurately with age

In a joint project co-led by researchers from the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG), new insights into the aging process have been gained: The reading of genes becomes faster and more error-prone with age. At the same time, the quality and accuracy of the cell components produced on the basis of these copies decreases. The research results have been published in Nature.
