[…] the study was approved by the academic medical center research ethics board (ccmo: nl45496.018.13)., primary quality control (qc) on the raw 450k dataset was performed using the r shiny package methylaid (version 1.4.0)[]. methylaid is a user- friendly visual and interactive web application enabling detection of bad quality samples using sample-dependent and sample-independent control […]

[…] system. twin pairs were analyzed on the same array. the three datasets were analyzed on different occasions., data preprocessing and quality control was performed in line with [] using the r-package methylaid. samples not meeting the quality requirements were excluded. probes with detection p-value >0.01, no signal, or bead count <3 were treated as missing. cpg sites with more than 5% […]

[…] but were randomly assigned to either the left or right column of the 450k array. we assessed data quality using both sample-dependent and sample-independent quality metrics using the r package methylaid (). bisulfite conversion efficiency was assessed using the dedicated 450k probes and sequencing the igf2 dmr0 of a random set of samples. we remeasured a subset of the genotypes measured […]

[…] beadchips (illumina) array according to the manufacturer’s protocol. quality control for obtained dna methylation data was performed with two different pipelines, a combination of methylaid [] and minfi tools []. probes with low bead count (< 3 beads), high detection p value (> 0.01), and zero signal and missing in > 5% of samples were removed from further analysis. […]
