Choosing a clock
In Nature Aging, researchers have published the creation of a new clock that uses multiple metrics to evaluate biological aging. What's worth measuring? Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA to determine biological age. There are many different...
Diabetes in aging
Researchers have published the results of a study in Aging Cell, finding some evidence that type 2 diabetes causes accelerated aging. Later-generation clocks only Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA to determine biological age. There are many...
Day Night Cycle
Epigenetic aging measurements can vary by the time of day at which they are taken, according to a study published in Aging Cell. The circadian rhythm Living on Earth, organisms have evolved to adapt to our planet's day/night cycle. This adaptation is known as the circadian rhythm, and it influences many aspects of biology. As...
Clock in hand
Researchers publishing in PNAS have found that well-known epigenetic clocks are valuable in predicting health outcomes, including mortality, in human beings. The usefulness of clocks Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA to determine biological age. There are...
Handful of organs
In Nature, a team has published its research on using protein analysis to estimate the aging of specific organs. Aging is not all at once While the processes of aging affect every organ of every person, the rates at which these processes affect these organs can vary greatly in people [1] and mice [2]. Similar,...
Ancient clock
An accepted manuscript in the Journals of Gerontology has described how a third-generation epigenetic clock is a predictor  of future frailty. Are epigenetic and physiological metrics connected? This paper begins with an examination of two different methods of measuring aging processes. The first is the well-known epigenetic clocks, and this paper lists several, including the...
