A meta-analysis on age-associated changes in blood DNA methylation: results from an original analysis pipeline for Infinium 450k data


Figure 2. Characteristics of the BOPs belonging to different probe classes. (A) Numbers of BOPs and CpG probes in Class A, Class B and Class C. For Class A and Class B, subdivision in CpG islands, N-Shores, S-Shores, N-Shelves and S-Shelves is reported. In the lower part of the tables, descriptive statistics for the distribution of number of probes/BOP in the 3 Classes are reported. (B) Descriptive statistics for the distribution of mean bp distance between probes /BOP in the 3 Classes are reported.(C) Density distributions (upper panel) and frequency histograms (lower panels) of the mean bp distance between the probes/BOP.
