[…] wiggle and bed files that were displayed in igv [] for visual inspection of the data genomic regions (promoter, exon, intron or intergenic region) affected by parental exposure to diuron. methylextract served also to generate genetic variant calls in vcf format. vcf files were analyzed with vcftools v0.1.12b []. average methylation profiles over transcribed regions were generated […]

[…] and the observed dna methylation (epiallele frequency) differences could be an expression of such underlying genetic (allele frequency [af]) difference. we used the genetic variants obtained with methylextract to search for signs of selection on a genome wide level. we used a total of 11 425 759 snps (control) and 9 517 133 snps (diuron) to calculate tajima’s d in 200 kb sliding windows.
