[…] in addition, probes having a detection p-value above 0.01 were filtered out, and 1921 probes were thus removed from analysis. the remaining 483591 probes were analysed. the cpgassoc r package and methlab software were used for differential methylation analysis together with the humanmethylation450 v1.2 manifest file containing cpg annotations. t-statistics were calculated using logit […]

[…] further analysis. the dataset generated in this study has been deposited in the gene expression omnibus (geo) under accession gse77241., differential methylation analysis was performed using the methlab r-based programme [] (r version 2.15.0). the programme enables us to identify significantly differentially methylated cpgs from the corrected β-values. the linear model with the factor […]

[…] using the illumina genome studio methylation module version 3.2, and values with a detection p-value greater than 0.05 were removed using a perl script., the genome-wide data were analyzed using the methlab version 1.5 (), an r package, as previously described (). smoking-related differential methylation between smokers and non-smokers was assessed while controlling for ethnicity, slide, […]

[…] ii software with advanced relative quantification for all samples. all experiments were repeated in duplicate., linear regression was used to assess differential methylation from hm27 data using methlab software (kilaru et al. ). all p-values were corrected using benjamini–hochberg (b-h) false discovery rate correction. all probes with difference in β-values ≥0.20 and significant […]

[…] a lookup of individual cpg loci of interest within our data set. for these analyses a cpg locus associated with p < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. we used the r program methlab v1.5 () and sas software (sas institute inc., cary, nc, usa) to run all analyses., characteristics of the study sample are summarized in . we ran models separately for blood and urinary total […]
