<p>Rotterdam, Netherlands -- Dutch researchers say they've developed a way to tell a person's approximate age from one drop of blood, a test that could be used in crime investigation.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Scientists at Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam say as a forensic technique it could be used to revive police investigations that have hit a dead end, AAAS ScienceMag.org reported Monday.</p> <p>The blood-age test relies on a peculiarity of T cells, immune cells in the body that recognize and fight microbial infections.</p> <p>As T cells develop, they modify their DNA to recognize a wide variety of bacteria and other pathogens.</p> <p>In the modification, some DNA is left over that is useless to the T cell, which discards it, researchers say.</p> <p><a
