Attempting to Determine Harmful versus Adaptive Changes Using Epigenetic Clock Techniques – Fight Aging!

[ad_1] The largest of the present challenges facing the use of epigenetic clocks to measure biological age is that there is no established causal connection between what the clock measures, meaning the methylation status of specific CpG sites on the genome, and specific aspects of the burden of age-related … Read more

Standardization to a Single Epigenetic Clock is Much Overdue – Fight Aging!

[ad_1] In the past year or two, a great deal of effort on the part of leading researchers has gone into trying to standardize the use of a single epigenetic clock based on DNA methylation status of CpG sites on the genome. Suitable candidate universal mammalian clocks now exist. … Read more

An Aging Clock Derived from Images of the Lens of the Eye – Fight Aging!

[ad_1] Recent years have made it clear that any sufficiently large set of data derived from biochemistry or physiology can be fed into a machine learning process to develop an weighted combination of measures that reflects biological age. These aging clocks have been derived from many forms of omics … Read more
