[…] a 640 bp product. pcr products were cloned into topo® ta cloning vector [invitrogen]), and 10 white colonies were randomly chosen for sequencing. dna methylation data were visualized by r package ‘methvisual’ []., ovarian cancer cell lines (a2780, a2780cis and skov3) were seeded in 35 mm dishes at a density of 1×105 cells/dish 1 day before drug treatment. cells were treated with 10 μm 5-aza-dc […]

[…] user friendly. using perl to recognize specific sequence motifs, several fasta files were created for each gene for each patient and then loaded onto a visualization tool such as biq analyzer [], methvisual [], quma [], or bisma []. however, these tools do not scale up with massively parallel sequencing having been designed for sanger sequencing. newer tools such as bismark [] and bs-seeker […]

DOI: 10.1038/bjc.2013.496

[…] that locus is considered to be differentially methylated. this 0.2 threshold corresponds to the recommended difference in methylation between samples that can be detected with 99% confidence (). methvisual () tests whether each cpg site has independent membership between two groups using fisher's exact test; other packages include (; ; ; ), some allowing for the adjustment of potential […]
