A team of researchers, including Drs. Vadim Gladyshev and Steve Horvath, recently published a review of DNA methylation aging clocks, which use biomarkers to determine the biological age of a person. Aging causes epigenetic alterations to occur, including changes to DNA methylation, histone modification, transcriptional alterations (variance in gene expression), and remodeling of chromatin (a...
