Epigenetic aging clock predicts the biological age of individual cells

One of the more promising biomarkers to measure biological aging is DNA methylation, an epigenetic modification that alters a specific sequence of DNA nucleotides known as CpG sites. Researchers have traditionally used epigenetic clocks, biochemical tests measuring the levels of DNA methylation, to profile the epigenetic age in bulk tissue samples. Using bulk samples can give an average of the patterns of methylation in tissue but obscures the differences that exist across individual cells. Read More
