Coefficient values for the DNAm age predictor.‚ÄČThis Excel file provides detailed information on the multi-tissue age predictor defined using the training set data. The multi-tissue age predictor uses 353 CpGs, of which 193 and 160 have positive and negative correlations with age, respectively. The table also represents the coefficient values for the shrunken age predictor that is based on a subset of 110 CpGs (a subset of the 353 CpGs). Although this information is sufficient for predicting age, I recommend using the R software tutorial since it implements the normalization method. The table reports a host of additional information for each CpG, including its variance, minimum value, maximum value, and median value across all training and test data. Further, it reports the median beta value in subjects aged younger than 35 years and in subjects older than 55 years.
