Why We Do It

We believe that epigenetic technology offers new understanding and insights into aging and disease.

That maturation of genetic sequencing technology platforms, coupled with emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and bioinformatics tools is allowing us to understand human biology in ways never imagined.

We specialize in discovering and understanding the role epigenetics, or gene expression, plays in individual health, wellness, and aging. We provide services and tools to the industries we serve in order to improve human health.

While a person’s underlying genetic code is stable throughout life, the mechanisms that drive their gene expression is a rapidly evolving science. We look at how DNA methylation relates to specific aspects of health, wellness, and aging. Our epigenome is the combination of natural and environmental modifications that imprint biomarkers to leave a unique biography of an individual’s health and wellness history.

How changes to the human epigenome can cause genes to express in a way that causes chronic illness and disease.
Smoking tobacco is a leading cause of cancer
Stress promotes Cardiovascular Disease
Obesity can cause genes to express as Diabetes
Diet & Exercise can increase/decrease Disease States

How We Do It

We identify epigenetic biomarkers along the epigenome by applying advanced automated machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies to create predictive models that correlate epigenetic profiles with states of health, wellness, disease, and aging. 

We ensure our data is prepped, quality-checked, and organized via custom bioinformatics pipelines to ensure reliable analyses.  

We support high throughput human and mouse epigenetic methylation and DNA array testing through CLIA certified laboratories.

Epigenetic Aging: How old is your DNA?

Dr. Steve Horvath, a professor of genetics and biostatistics at UCLA, has found a way to measure biological aging – a type of “clock” – based on the methylation pattern of an organism’s genome.

David Sinclair & Joe Rogan

Our journey started with Dr. Steve Horvath’s research into aging. Listen to Dr. David Sinclair explain who Dr. Horvath is and why our technology is fundamental to understanding aging.
