Epigenome-wide association study of leukocyte telomere length

Figure 6. Heat map of correlations between the co-methylated module representatives and LTL, the partially adjusted LTL, the fully adjusted LTL, age, and blood cell counts. The numbers in the cells refer to meta-Z scores and their corresponding p-values. Meta-Z scores were calculated based on biweight midcorrelations between DNAm and a trait of interest in the six strata. 1Partially adjusted LTL for age, sex and ethnicity. 2Fully adjusted LTL for age, sex, ethnicity, CD4+ naïve, CD8+ naïve and exhausted cytotoxic T cell.
