accuracies and various technical problems, and are therefore not suitable for practical applications [4]. Proposed biochemical methods, such as those based on the accumulation of D-aspartic acid, involve the destructive analysis of specific body parts (such as bones, teeth and ligaments), and suffer from technical issues and bio-degradation [4]. In the present study, we demonstrate that human individual age can be estimated accurately and reliably from blood using T-cell DNA rearrangements, and… CONTINUE READING
