As we age, our skin changes, and so too do the bugs that live there
A new tool has been developed that can effectively predict a person’s chronological age based on a microbiome sample. The tool, developed in collaboration between UC San Diego and IBM researchers, is most accurate at predicting a person’s age when using a skin microbiome sample.

Just say aah: The bugs living on your skin, and in your mouth and gut could reveal your age.
