Existing data resources have been used opportunistically to develop thinking about early life beginnings of life long vulnerability, and about long-term exposure to risk. These data resources can provide more insights with new methods of analysis, and possibly pooling and greater harmonization of new data collection. The new, larger, and interdisciplinary life course data resources being developed for epigenetic research will use new methods to measure the impact of current environmental challenges, and should consider in their design the value of data missing by design.

Keywords:   life course data resources, epigenetics, data missing by design, exposure to risk, pooling, harmonization
