The paternal age at conception effect on offspring telomere length: mechanistic, comparative and adaptive perspectives (Philosophical Transactions B, 2017-10)Telomeres are repeating DNA found at the ends of chromosomes that, in the absence of restorative processes, shorten with cell replications and are implicated as a cause of senescence. It appears that sperm telomere length ...

Improving qPCR telomere length assays: Controlling for well position effects increases statistical power (American Journal of Human Biology, 2015-01)Objectives: Telomere length (TL) is commonly measured using quantitative PCR (qPCR). Although easier than the southern blot of terminal restriction fragments (TRF) TL measurement method, one drawback of qPCR is that it ...
