Biological age-predicting 'epigenetic clock' for studying how to extend lifespan

Biological age-predicting ‘epigenetic clock’ for studying how to extend lifespan In order to measure and test the effects of interventions in the lab, investigators have developed an age-predicting clock designed for studies in mice. The new clock accurately predicts mouse biological age and the effects of genetic and dietary factors, giving the scientific community a…
