A method for calling DMRs using Illumina 450K Methylation BeadChip arrays implemented as part of suite of functions in the Bioconductor package ChAMP – an all-in-one analysis pipeline that takes raw methylation data and derives MVPs and DMRs for further investigation. Probe Lasso is a flexible window based approach that gathers neighbouring significant-signals to define clear DMR boundaries for subsequent in-depth analysis. The principal motive for developing this algorithm is to redirect subsequent analysis away from just probes/regions located in promoters/CGIs, which the array is skewed toward and leverage information from putatively important, but largely ignored, intergenic regions.
