      Lee, Yunsung; Løkås Haftorn, Kristine; Denault, William Robert Paul; Nustad, Haakon Egdetveit; Page, Christian; Moen, Gunn-Helen; Magnus, Maria C.; Gjessing, Håkon K.; Harris, Jennifer R.; Magnus, Per; Håberg, Siri E.; Jugessur, Astanand; Bohlin, Jon; Lyle, Robert; Lee-Ødegård, Sindre; Groop, Leif C.; Prasad, Rashmi B.; Sletner, Line; Sommer, Christine (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background Epigenetic clocks have been recognized for their precise prediction of chronological age, age-related diseases, and all-cause mortality. Existing epigenetic clocks are based on CpGs from the Illumina ...
    • An EPIC predictor of gestational age and its application to newborns conceived by assisted reproductive technologies 

      Haftorn, Kristine Løkås; Lee, Yunsung; Denault, William Robert Paul; Page, Christian Magnus; Nustad, Haakon Egdetveit; Lyle, Robert; Gjessing, Håkon Kristian; Malmberg, Anni; Magnus, Maria Christine; Næss, Øyvind; Czamara, Darina; Räikkönen, Katri; Lahti, Jari; Magnus, Per Minor; Håberg, Siri Eldevik; Jugessur, Astanand; Bohlin, Jon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background: Gestational age is a useful proxy for assessing developmental maturity, but correct estimation of gestational age is difficult using clinical measures. DNA methylation at birth has proven to be an accurate ...
    • Epigenome-wide association study of leukocyte telomere length 

      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 ...
    • 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 ...
