DNA Methylation and the Epigenetic Clock

  • Our new DNA methylation kit will help us build a better epigenetic clock building the largest, most diverse dataset ever assembled. With your help, BioViva Sciences will identify lifestyle factors and interventions that turn back the hands of time.
  • Epigenetics is a hot topic. There are few areas of biology it hasn’t touched. DNA determines what makes up a given protein, but epigenetic modifications tell it when and how much of a protein needs to be produced.
  • Methylation, the addition of a methyl group to DNA, is the best studied epigenetic modification. Methylating a sequence of DNA silences it, stopping it from making a particular protein. Steve Horvath, a professor of human genetics and biostatistics at UCLA, has used insights from epigenetics to construct a clock.
  • Chronological age and biological age are not the same thing.  You may be older or younger than your chronological age, as measured by the epigenetic clock.
  • BioViva is committed to ensuring the privacy of any data shared with us. We go above and beyond the requirements of HIPAA and GDPR.
    We are focused on user anonymity and secure data analysis.

Due to an unexpectedly high volume of orders it may take up to 16 weeks for you to receive your kit.
