    Regulation of life span by the gut microbiota in the short-lived African turquoise killifish

    Patrick Smith et al.
    Resetting a young gut microbiota in middle-aged individuals extends life span and slows aging in the naturally short-lived turquoise killifish, a new vertebrate model organism to study how the microbiota affects the aging process.
