Raw data import software tools | DNA methylation microarray data analysis
As for their many other BeadArray platforms, Illumina methylation data is usually obtained in the form of Intensity Data (IDAT) Files. This is a proprietary format that is output by the scanner and stores summary intensities for each probe on the array. However, there are Bioconductor packages available that facilitate the import of data from IDAT files into R.
Allows users to collect, manage, and effectively analyze data from microarray experiments. TM4 Microarray Software Suite is composed of a set of four tools: Madam, Spotfinder, Midas and MeV. It offers functions that allow users to record their experimental parameters and data; permit researchers to load the output of a microarray scanning operation and to adjust the placement of each grid cell manually allow for accurate spot detection.
Allows visualization and analysis of data generated on Illumina array platforms. GenomeStudio is a data analysis tool that provides three modules: (1) Genotyping Module for the analysis of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) and copy number variations (CNVs) data and detection of sample outliers, (2) Gene Expression Module for the detection of cytosine methylation at single-base resolution and identification of methylation signatures across the entire genome, and (3) Polyploid Genotyping Module for the analysis of polyploid organism genotyping data.
A suite of computational tools that incorporate state-of-the-art statistical techniques for the analysis of DNAm data. minfi provides methods for preprocessing, quality assessment and detection of differentially methylated regions from the kilobase to the megabase scale. Several preprocessing algorithms are available and the infrastructure provides a convenient way for developers to easily implement their techniques as Bioconductor tools. By making SNP annotation available, users can choose to be cautious about probes that may behave unexpectedly due to the inclusion of a SNP in the probe sequence. minfi is unique in that it provides both bump hunting and block finding capabilities, and the assessment of statistical significance for the identified regions. Finally, because the package is implemented in Bioconductor, it gives users access to the countless analysis and visualization tools available in R.
A package that provides classes for holding and manipulating Illumina methylation data. Based on eSet, it can contain MIAME information, sample information, feature information, and multiple matrices of data. An ``intelligent'' import function, methylumiR can read the Illumina text files and create a MethyLumiSet. methylumIDAT can directly read raw IDAT files from HumanMethylation27 and HumanMethylation450 microarrays. Normalization, background correction, and quality control features for GoldenGate, Infinium, and Infinium HD arrays are also included.
An R package for comprehensive analysis of DNA methylation data obtained with any experimental protocol that provides single-CpG resolution, including Infinium 450K microarray and bisulfite sequencing protocols, but also MeDIP-seq and MBD-seq.
A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) bioinformatics tool that has been widely adopted by the research community for genomics studies. It provides an integrated environment for microarray data management, analysis and interpretation. Most of its functionality for statistical, pathway and gene ontology analysis can also be applied independently to data generated by other molecular technologies. ArrayTrack has added capability to manage, analyse and interpret proteomics and metabolomics data after quantification of peptides and metabolites abundance, respectively. Annotation information about single nucleotide polymorphisms and quantitative trait loci has been integrated to support genetics-related studies. Other extensions have been added to manage and analyse genomics data related to bacterial food-borne pathogens. By providing powerful but easy-to-use utilities, ArrayTrack is positioned to assist in making integrated, contextualised analyses more common, which, in turn, will help to harness genetic knowledge to improve the protection of public health.
Allows Illumina HumanMethylation BeadChip analysis. ChAMP is an integrated analysis pipeline including functions for (i) filtering low quality probes, adjustment for Infinium I and Infinium II probe design, (ii) batch effect correction, detecting differentially methylated positions (DMPs), (iii) finding differentially methylated regions (DMRs) and (iv) detection of copy number aberrations. The software also allows detection of differentially methylated genomic blocks (DMB) and Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA).
