Male-specific age estimation based on Y-chromosomal DNA methylation

Age prediction of male samples included in the testing set of this study (n = 127) using the publically available Horvath age predictor based on 353 autosomal CpGs [1]. (A) Predicted vs. true age and (B) age prediction errors per age category. ρ: Spearman correlation coefficient, RMSE: root mean square error, MAD: mean absolute deviation.
