now, for the first time, distinct pathways associated with age at an individual level have been classified.In this month’s publication of Nature, a study was published by the Department of Genetics, Stanford University School of Medicine that revealed personal aging markers and ageotypes by looking at the types of molecular pathways that changed over time in an individual. Epigenetics aside, this study found many more different types of molecules, such as transcripts, proteins and metabolites as well as the microbiome, that were associated with age, including 87 significant molecules and 84 significant pathways.
