Identification of tissue-specific and common methyla...

Understanding the influence of genetic variants on DNA methylation is fundamental for the interpretation of epigenomic data in the context of disease. The dataset developed in this project provides matched genotyping and DNA methylation data in four tissues (ileum, rectum, T-cells, B-cells) from healthy individuals. Using this data, we demonstrate the discrimination of common from cell-type-specific methQTLs. Our analysis demonstrates that a systematic analysis of methQTLs provides important ...
