Hi All,

I am new to analyzing DNA methylation data on an array scale. i have worked on a pipeline and done some analysis so i have some basic knowledge but want to start over to make sure my QC and analysis are correct. Thus, i have hit my first bump. After SWAN normalisation, most samples fell into line apart from one that is clearly out on the 'methylated' mode, and a few are a bit hairy in the middle.

please see image here,

The sample passed detectionP no problems, do you think its distribution on the graph is means to remove the sample?

Kind Regards,
Pete

Further, if anyone can tell me how to derive my own answer i would greatly appreciate the opportunity to learn how!

Its a tough one. From the density plot it is a bit of an outlier which is never a good sign. On the other hand, the density per se does not look horrible. I would say it requires more information On Wed, Jul 25, 2018 at 10:54 PM peter.fransquet [bioc] < noreply@bioconductor.org> wrote: > Activity on a post you are following on support.bioconductor.org > > User peter.fransquet <https: support.bioconductor.org="" u="" 15875=""/> wrote Comment: > Odd Sample after SWAN normalisation, DNA methylation analysis EPIC array > <https: support.bioconductor.org="" p="" 111398="" #111399="">: > > Further, if anyone can tell me how to derive my own answer i would greatly > appreciate the opportunity to learn how! > ------------------------------ > > Post tags: minfi, normalization, outliers, dna methylation, epic > microarray > > You may reply via email or visit > C: Odd Sample after SWAN normalisation, DNA methylation analysis EPIC array >
