Evaluating the effect of the error on the DNAm age estimate in the cancer samples. The old, incorrect estimate of DNAm age (y-axis) versus the correct estimate (x-axis). Note that the two estimates are highly correlated (r = 0.98), which explains why most results are unaffected, but the old estimate is poorly calibrated, which leads to an average bias of 42 years. After using the correct estimate, I can no longer observe a positive age acceleration effect in cancer.
