Precision genomics point the way to mutations associated with accelerated aging

July 5th, 2018 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized

Researchers are using precision genomics to search for undiscovered, inheritable genetic mutations that cause accelerated aging. Researchers conducted a study assessing 17 patients with short telomere syndromes -- rare conditions that result in premature DNA and cellular deterioration. The ability to pinpoint the genetic abnormalities associated with short telomere syndromes is key to finding better ways to screen, diagnose and treat patients.
