Clinical Applications of Basic Research: The Case of the Epigenetic Clock in Developing Populations

Epigenetics is the study of chemical modifications to DNA that correspond with gene expression. Epigenetic marks change across development, leading to the creation of an epigenetic clock which is used to estimate biological age. Learn more about novel findings on the use of the epigenetic clock in developing populations to understand the long-term effects of early life adversity.
