Profiling Age and Body Fluid DNA Methylation Markers

DNA methylation plays a key role in physiological processes including regulating gene expression and is a widely used biomarker for age prediction and the identification of body fluids. 

Traditionally, methylation detection relies on independent targeting of CpG sites as part of a multiplexed assay, which requires a complex, multistep workflow.

In this webinar, our expert speaker will present a new approach – using nanopore adaptive sampling for comprehensive methylation profiling.

They’ll illustrate how nanopore adaptive sampling has successfully corroborated known CpG markers for age and body fluids as well as identifying potential new age-related methylation sites, outlining its potential in forensics and the clinic.

Attend this webinar to: 

  • Gain insights into how nanopore adaptive sampling is used to simultaneously detect age and body fluid-specific DNA methylation markers
  • Learn how the shift from experimental to computational strategies provides a more comprehensive methylation analysis
  • Hear how nanopore adaptive sampling addresses the challenges of methylation detection
