CpG location and methylation level are crucial factors for the early detection of oral squamous cell carcinoma in brushing samples using bisulfite sequencing of a 13 gene panel

Clin Epigenetics
PMCID: 5558660
PMID: 28814981
DOI: 10.1186/s13148-017-0386-7

[…] TGA4, MIR193), whereas three were hypomethylated (GP1BB, MIR296, TERT) in OSCC/HGSIL. Additional file depicts the mean methylation level for each group of the interrogated genes visualized using the Methylation plotter tool [] and the Kruskal-Wallis test for single CpG. Figure shows the fluctuating methylation level among different CpGs evaluated in GP1BB and ZAP70. Mean methylation level and co […]

[…] ches implemented depend on the type of data analyzed.R packages that can implement some of all of the above include MethVisual (), methyAnalysis (version 1.12.0; R Project for Statistical Computing), Methylation plotter (), MethTools (), MethylMix (), IMA (), coMET (), and minfi () (). Most of these enable implementation of site-level as well as region-level DNA methylation analysis based on the 4 […]


Profiling genome wide DNA methylation

PMCID: 4926291

Methylation plotter is a user-friendly tool to build publication ready figures for the visualization of DNA methylation data. It can also be used for visualization of NOMEseq analysis (Nucleosome occupancy and methylation data). Different kinds of visualization can be selected (Box plots, methylation profiling, clustering.....). Statistics are also available. The tool is very easy to use.
The last star would have been selected if it had been possible to choose to change the design of the plots (colors...).
