Biology is notoriously complex, difficult to measure or model. Aging is an especially challenging topic within biology - still incompletely understood and prone to misconception, narrative fallacy and hype. Unlike other disciplines such as physics, mechanical engineering, and even chemistry - where computational modeling allows rapid iteration and design - we don’t yet have good computational models of biology and so rely heavily on reductionist narratives. Yet we have to start somewhere, and progress has been made! To help people from diverse backgrounds get oriented in aging biology and longevity biotech, we’ve compiled a list of freely available online resources.
