These days, it seems like you cannot go for a walk without tripping over another aging clock, and today is no exception. DeepMAge, a DNA methylation aging clock developed using deep learning, has recently been created by the Hong Kong-based company Deep Longevity. There are two common ways to measure age: biological and chronological. The...

Dr. Steve Horvath is very well known in the field for his groundbreaking work on epigenetic clocks, which use one of the hallmarks of aging, epigenetic alterations, in order to calculate biological age. In his talk at Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, he discussed how such clocks can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of rejuvenation...

A new study published in the Journals of Gerontology has shown that the epigenetic clock GrimAge is a strong predictor of the effects of aging, particularly all-cause mortality: the likelihood of dying from any cause. Did previous clocks use the wrong target? As the researchers explain, the first-generation epigenetic clocks of Drs. Horvath (who contributed...

Today, we have something a little bit different: progress in aging biomarkers but, this time, for cats! The race has been on for some years now to create biomarkers that can accurately measure biological age. Having such biomarkers is critical in the development of therapies that target the aging processes directly, and one of the...

Researchers have found that CLOCK, a protein that regulates the circadian cycle of our cells, also fights cellular senescence by promoting chromatin stability [1]. Since its very beginning, life on Earth had to adapt to our planet's natural 24-hour rotation cycle. Rising to the challenge, nature invented biological mechanisms called circadian clocks (from the Latin...

A team of researchers have developed a tissue-specific clock that can measure the biological age of skin. There is plenty of new evidence that different organs and tissues in our body age at different rates. In particular, the epigenetic state, the pattern of gene expression, of the cells that comprise these different organs and tissues...
