Dear all, I am trying to use bsseq to analyze WGBS data and identify DMRs following drug treatment. I have a BSseq object consisting of 2 samples (treated and ctrl) that has been smoothed: >smooth An object of type 'BSseq' with 38250590 methylation loci 2 samples has been smoothed with BSmooth (ns = 50, h = 500, maxGap = 100000000) When trying to run BSmooth.tstat, I am encountering the following error due to NAs: >smooth=BSmooth.tstat(smooth, group1="Ctrl", group2="Treated", estimate.var="paired", verbose=TRUE, local.correct=TRUE) preprocessing ... done in 76.1 sec computing stats within groups ... done in 11.9 sec computing stats across groups ... Error in approxfun(xx, yy) : need at least two non-NA values to interpolate Timing stopped at: 7.994 1.649 9.64 However, when I checked in my methylation and coverage matrix, I didn't see any NAs contained in my data, so I am not sure why I am getting this error. > summary(getMeth(smooth)) Ctrl Treated Min. :0.0000 Min. :0.0000 1st Qu.:0.6064 1st Qu.:0.3391 Median :0.8402 Median :0.4816 Mean :0.7131 Mean :0.4365 3rd Qu.:0.9006 3rd Qu.:0.5600 Max. :1.0000 Max. :1.0000 I would appreciate any suggestions or advice.

This is hard to know for sure without knowing much more about the data. My guess is that you have some contigs (chromosomes) which are super small and they cause problems. You can also try setting verbose to say 2 or 3 and see if that helps narrow down where in the function it happens.

As Tim Triche pointed out off-list: what you're doing does not make sense when you only have 1 sample in each group. I was clearly reading the report too fast.

I am also having the same problem - but when I get the information on the smoothed data: 

summary(getMeth(bsseq.data.smoothed))

I see that there are quite a few NAs ~700 for most of my samples. I don't know whether this is because I did a targeted approach and many of the CpGs were not targeted. Is there somehow I can remove those CpGs which have not been covered by the targeted approach?

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Hannah
