Study reveals correlation between age and DNA mutations

A number of media outlets recently reported on new research from the Scripps Translational Science Institute which revealed that a special type of stem cell made from adult cells taken from older donors contains higher numbers of DNA mutations.


The study results were published by the journal Nature Biotechnology.
