About the project
Due to medical advancements, global average life expectancy has increased significantly. We can now monitor the health of any individual by analyzing a saliva sample using the latest sequencing platforms to determine their epigenetic profile. We then use our artificial intelligence tool to analyze the data and predict biological age, which may not correspond to the number of years a person has been alive (chronological age). The biological age is an important parameter to determine in addition to blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels, which are commonly used to determine the state of health. We have also developed a Graphic User Interface, which provides a visualisation of the epigenetic profile.
