What’s the difference between biological age and epigenetic age?Updated a month ago

Biological age is an abstract, intuitive concept that describes how someone is aging internally, externally, and functionally. It explains why people age differently and why one person can seem more youthful than others of the same chronological age. While biological age cannot be comprehensively measured with a single test, it is possible to capture indicators of biological age. One of these indicators is epigenetic age, which predicts age, given DNA methylation information.
