Telomeres are gene sequences present at chromosomal ends and are responsible for maintaining genome integrity. Telomere length is maximum at birth and decreases progressively with advancing age and thus is considered as a biomarker of chronological aging. Every time a cell divides, its telomeres get a little shorter. Years of replication can eventually wear telomeres
