Farewell Gen P, welcome new AgeCurve App

We are getting there! Based on our early user experience interviews, we have re-designed our application. We wanted to reach 2 goals More accessible, less scientific content Focusing clearly on aging related features Accordingly, we have also dropped the name ‘Gen P’ and renamed the application simply to be called AgeCurve App from now on. If […]

AgeCurve Founder’s talk at an SIU event at Cambridge University

AgeCurve’s founder, Attila Csordas is giving a talk at the Meet the Founder: Pitch Perfect event at Cambridge University. The event is organised by The Science Innovation Union, an entrepreneurs-led not-for-profit organization with over 2,500 members across London, Cambridge, Oxford, Frankfurt.

GenomeWeb’s story on AgeCurve

Below please find the piece written by GenomeWeb editor Adam Bonislawski based on my answers and his research. GenomeWeb is one of the most respected, American online news organisation covering life sciences. Adam has been editing GenomeWeb’s Proteomics & Protein Research Section, serving the bigger proteomics community and he kindly gave us permission to post the whole report […]

It’s agings, not just aging: how the AgeCurve kit covers separate underlying processes

For the sake of simplicity people use ‘Aging’ as a term to denote all the underlying processes behind this most complex biological phenomenon, experienced by most and happening in all human adults during their lifetime. Laypeople and scientists alike use the singular form, while in the light of recent research (think of the last couple decades) it’s […]

AgeCurve App: measuring the human holobiont: human host + permanent guest bacteria

Earlier we have compared the AgeCurve style first-to-market personal proteome kit to personal genome and personal microbiome services.  Today we highlight and explain one big difference implicit in those comparisons. For this we need to introduce the term holobiont: holobionts are units of biological organisations composed of the host organism and its associated microbes. The prefix holo- […]

Comparing personal microbiome and personal proteome services

Although AgeCurve is opening a new niche market in digital health by offering age focused personal proteome services with Gen P, it builds upon the decade long progress made by other companies in the personal omics field. Big thank for those companies for creating that market at all and nurturing it with different innovations. In Differences […]

Gen P users have their proteomes sequenced, but what is a proteome anyway?

Most of us have some ideas of what proteins are and even can tell some examples by name and function. Fitness enthusiasts & gym lovers usually know about actin or even myosin and their role in muscle contractions. Health-conscious eaters and nutritionists know about ovalbumin, the major protein found in eggs. Careful parents might know […]

Gen P Molecular Stories: proteome maintenance, ubiquitin

  Molecular stories are an important feature for Gen P users and we are in the middle of implementing them. Last time we have talked about adaptive immunity where we have consistent quantitative output on some of the immunoglobulin protein players to make a molecular story about this important protein subsystem that is the prime line […]

Gen P Molecular Stories: adaptive immunity

  One of Gen P‘s crucial features are going to be different molecular stories custom-made for individual users based on the particular protein abundance values measured. These proteins might be human host proteins but can also come from the bacteria that inhabit the human saliva. We are going to have stories using both types of proteins […]

Top 10 most abundant bacteria in the oral microbiome

Gen P measures proteins by relative abundance and so far we have talked about the most abundant human proteins and top bacterial proteins in our Private Beta samples. It’s time to name the top detected bacteria to date forming a core part of the oral microbiome.
