Exercise clock
A new, three-year study published in The Journals of Gerontology: Series A examined the relationship between epigenetic clocks and physical performance in older women. Epigenetic clocks and biological age  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...
Exercise
Scientists have used DNA methylation markers to measure the anti-aging effects of healthy diet and physical activity, reaching interesting, if at times contradictory, results [1]. Move, eat healthy, check your biological age Physical activity (PA) and healthy diet are two powerful interventions that have time and again shown their potential to slow aging. Their importance...
Levine Interview
In her lab at Yale, Dr. Morgan Levine tackles some of the most exciting and difficult problems in geroscience. She specializes in bioinformatics and is working on creating and finessing clocks that measure biological age. We talked with Dr. Levine about her work, the impact that biological age clocks have had on the longevity field,...
Steve Horvath at EARD2021
In his talk at Ending Age-Related Diseases 2021, Steve Horvath discussed a cytosine-based, pan-mammalian epigenetic clock that works across a wide variety of species. He also discussed how several of the hallmarks of aging do not seem to have any effect on epigenetic alterations.  Script Hello, thank you for your interest. My name is...
Elderly exercising
Researchers have developed a biological aging clock based on movement data from wearable devices. Using their clock and the same dataset, they identified a few possibly life-prolonging nutrients and drugs [1]. I move, therefore I am Developing reliable biomarkers of aging is crucial for geroscience, since deducing the geroprotective effect of interventions from mortality alone,...

With so many health and disease outcomes connected to the biological aging processes, research into quantifying and tracking aging has surged in recent years due to the work of Steve Horvath, Morgan Levine, and others. Currently, epigenetic analysis of biological aging is thought to be the most comprehensive and accurate measurement of aging that is...
