comb-p in pipeline

PMCID: 5627482
PMID: 29026448
DOI: 10.1186/s13148-017-0408-5

[…] pathways related to brain development, general cellular functions, and tight junctions., we based the selection of the gabbr1 gene for further validation on the merged analysis from both dmrcate and comb-p, two methods that use different strategies to identify dmrs using hm450 data. although absolute dna methylation differences appeared small, cohen’s d effect sizes in the region were medium […]

[…] spectra were acquired using the massarray® analyzer instrument, and raw data were processed with typeranalyzer software according to the massarray® analyzer user’s guide., dmrs were identified with comb-p analysis [], using the list of uncorrected p values for all cpg sites as calculated from the differential methylation analysis together with their chromosomal location. this statistical […]

[…] a pipeline for the identification of differentially methylated regions (dmrs). raw p-values for individual cpg sites within each region designated by the bumphunter package were combined using the comb-p software [] and regional p-values were corrected for multiple testing. the comb-p package first calculates the correlation between proximal p-values of varying distances. […]

[…] we performed the differentially methylated region (dmr) analysis on the combined results from both samples based on the input of individual p-values of at least 5e-05 and within 500 bp using comb-p., a high number of studies showed mostly single snp associations in different genes with pd, however, the replicability of these findings was low. therefore, we used three lines of approaches […]

[…] (ora) method in erminej with a minimum gene set of 5, and a maximum of 100 []., in order to verify the top dmrs from the dmrcate analysis, we used a second region-specific method: the python module comb-p []. comb-p employs probe locations and p values from the differentially methylated cpg probe (dmp) analysis as input to identify differentially methylated regions. we, therefore, first […]
