      Lee, Yunsung; Sun, Dianjianyi; Ori, Anil P.S.; Lu, Ake T.; Seeboth, Anne; Harris, Sarah E.; Deary, Ian J.; Marioni, Riccardo E.; Sørensen, Mette; Mengel-From, Jonas; Hjelmborg, Jacob; Christensen, Kaare; Wilson, James G.; Levy, Daniel; Reiner, Alex P.; Chen, Wei; Li, Shengxu; Harris, Jennifer Ruth; Magnus, Per; Aviv, Abraham; Jugessur, Astanand; Horvath, Steve (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Telomere length is associated with age-related diseases and is highly heritable. It is unclear, however, to what extent epigenetic modifications are associated with leukocyte telomere length (LTL). In this study, we conducted ...

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Childhood aggressive behavior (AGG) has a substantial heritability of around 50%. Here we present a genome-wide association meta-analysis (GWAMA) of childhood AGG, in which all phenotype measures across childhood ages from ...
    • Placental epigenetic clocks: estimating gestational age using placental DNA methylation levels 

      Lee, Yunsung; Choufani, Sanaa; Weksberg, Rosanna; Wilson, Samantha L.; Yuan, Victor; Burt, Amber; Marsit, Carmen; Lu, Ake T.; Ritz, Beate; Bohlin, Jon; Gjessing, Håkon K.; Harris, Jennifer Ruth; Magnus, Per; Binder, Alexandra M.; Robinson, Wendy P.; Jugessur, Astanand; Horvath, Steve (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The human pan-tissue epigenetic clock is widely used for estimating age across the entire lifespan, but it does not lend itself well to estimating gestational age (GA) based on placental DNAm methylation (DNAm) data. We ...
