[…] the four genotypes. next, the mean methylation levels of cpgs covered with at least 5 reads in dmrs were computed in each genotype. finally, the dmrs were further assessed by a quantitative method qdmr based on shannon entropy among the four genotypes. the dmrs with default entropy value <2 remained. to study the patterns of dynamic change of dna methylation and their coordinate regulation […]

[…] 75%, while in the other type ofgametes less than 25%, with a significant p < 0.05 given by multiple student's t-test and a benjamini-hochberg false discovery rate (fdr) < 0.05., we applied qdmr (version 1.0) to analyze d-dmrs with default parameters. each region was assigned an entropy value by qdmr based on the methylation levels for all the samples. the regions whose entropy is less […]

[…] nonparametric and kernel-based method (m3d), beta-binomial model (methylsig), beta-binomial hierarchical model (moabs), hidden markov model (nhmmfdr), three-state hmm (methpipe), shannon entropy (qdmr), and a binary segmentation algorithm combined with a two-dimensional statistical test (metilene). usually, the latest software compares with some previous methods and claims best performance, […]

[…] ti,b=∑s=1n[w(ui,s)×mi,s]∑s=1nw(ui,s) is a weighted mean. a processed methylation level m′i,,s for sample s is then calculated as m′i,s = |mi,s – ti,b|. using the transformed methylation levels, qdmr first defines an entropy score as: hp=−∑s=1np′i,slog2(p′i,s), where p′i,s=mi,s/∑s=1nm′i,s. to account for the range of variation, qdmr introduces a methylation weight to modify the above hp.

[…] annotation information was based on the hg19 human genome (http://genome.ucsc.edu). differentially methylated regions (dmrs) were identified by quantitative differentially methylated regions (qdmr) []. the qdmr is a quantitative approach to quantify methylation difference and identify dmrs from genome-wide methylation profiles with a concept of ‘dna methylation entropy’ []. the ‘dna […]

[…] each cell type using the pearson correlation (mean = 0.97). to identify cgis that were differentially methylated between two replicas of the same cell line, we have sequentially applied two methods: quantitative differentially methylated region (qdmr) and hypergeometric based approach (hba). the first is a quantitative method that identifies differentially methylated regions using […]
