Epigenetics is the study of molecules and mechanisms that influence the expression of genes without changing the DNA sequence. One of these molecules is DNA methylation- the addition of a methyl group to the DNA sequence. At certain areas of the genome, the amount of DNA methylation present changes with age in a predictable manner, thereby allowing us to use it to estimate age with a lot of accuracy. This is exactly what we use to estimate your pet's age.
