The development and application of high-throughput methods to study aspects of aging-related biology are among the key forces driving the field. New hypotheses are being developed, and new questions are being asked on a genome-wide scale. High-throughput technologies offer many advantages over traditional methods, but they also present new pitfalls for the unwary. Rather than provide detailed protocols for different methods, this chapter attempts to give an overview of some of the ways that high-throughput methods are currently being applied to aging-related research, along with a discussion of both the successes and the difficulties associated with these new technologies.
