Google-backed medical research company Calico will partner with Ancestry.com to identify genetic patterns of anonymous people who have lived long lives with the aim of producing drugs to encourage those traits.

Calico and Ancestry.com’s subsidiary, AncestryDNA, will study the “anonymized data from millions of public family trees and a growing database of over one million genetic samples” in “an effort to investigate human heredity of lifespan,” Calico announced last week.
