Dear all,

I have a problem occurring using the command dmrfinder
> dmrs0 <- dmrFinder(bsseqbismark_smooth_chrI_location3_5_tstat, cutoff = c(-4.6, 4.6))
Error in dmrFinder(bsseqbismark_smooth_chrI_location3_5_tstat, cutoff = c(-4.6, : 'stat' needs to be a column of 'bstat@stats'
I checked the
> colnames(bsseqbismark_smooth_chrI_location3_5_tstat@stats)
[1] "rawSds" "" "group2.means" "group1.means" "tstat"

this is the same as in your example cancer data set, except the
> colnames(BS.cancer.ex.tstat@stats)
[1] "rawSds" "" "group2.means" "group1.means" "tstat" [6] "tstat.corrected"

My object is
An object of type 'BSseqTstat' with 50684 methylation loci based on smoothed data: BSmooth (ns = 70, h = 1000, maxGap = 100000000) with parameters BSmooth.tstat (local.correct = FALSE, maxGap = 100000000) 'stats' slot is in-memory

The difference I find to your example data is that I have also:
> class(bsseqbismark_smooth_chrI_location3_5_tstat@stats)
[1] "DelayedMatrix" attr(,"package") [1] "DelayedArray"

and you have

> class(BS.cancer.ex.tstat@stats)
[1] "matrix"
Do you know what is happening? Can I provide you with more information? Should I prevent to get a Delayed Array? Does this come from how I subsetted my data to the type 3 and 5?

bsseqbismark_smooth_chrI_location3_5 <- (bsseqbismark_smooth_chrI[, which(bsseqbismark_smooth_chrI$Type %in% c(3,5))])


Thanks  a lot!!

I found the answer myself, I have to change the statistics settings as I set local.correct = FALSE before. I did this choice as I read somewhere this might be better for RRBS data. 

dmrs0 <- dmrFinder(obj.tstat, cutoff = c(-4.6, 4.6),stat = "tstat")

Thanks anyways! :)
