Andrew Simpkin Bioinformatics seminar on 30 March 2017

Andrew Simpkin will present next week’s Bioinformatics seminar (ADB1020 at 12:00 on Thursday, 30 March). Title and brief description below.
Epigenetic age and physical development

Prediction models which use DNA methylation to predict chronological age have recently been developed with 96% correlation found between epigenetic and actual age. Departures from epigenetic age, so-called called age acceleration residuals, have been proposed as a measure of biological ageing. We aimed to investigate whether age acceleration was associated with development during childhood and adolescence using repeated measures data from a large birth cohort in the UK.
