DNA Methylation Patterns

DNA methylation involves adding a methyl group to DNA, typically suppressing gene expression. Changes in methylation patterns are among the most reliable indicators of biological age. Researchers use DNA methylation levels to develop biomarkers that predict age-related health risks and overall longevity. These patterns help in understanding how epigenetic changes contribute to aging and the role they play in the development of age-related diseases.
