Case study: DNA methylation data analysis
Free Closed [?]
In the PH525 case studies, we will explore the data analysis of an experimental protocol in depth, using various open source software, including R and Bioconductor. We will explain how to start with raw data, and perform the standard processing and normalization steps to get to the point where one can investigate relevant biological questions. Throughout the case studies, we will make use of exploratory plots to get a general overview of the shape of the data and the result of the experiment.
We will learn the basic steps in analyzing DNA methylation data, including reading the raw data, normalization, and finding regions of differential methylation across multiple samples.
