The effect sizes of the top-ranked differentially methylated sites. The effect sizes of the top-ranked differentially methylated sites from the monozygotic twin pairs (MZ, "Discovery set") were examined for reproducibility in the dizygotic twin pairs ("DZ, Validation set") by comparing the corresponding values in a scatterplot. A) effect size was measured as methylation difference (% estimate by RADMeth) and b) standardised effect size was measured as estimated methylation difference over standard deviation of pairwise methylation difference (n = 172, R = 0.452, p value = 4.754e-10 and R = 0.354, p value = 1.837e-6, respectively, by Pearson correlation test). The top 200 sites in the MZ cohort were initially selected (ranked by q value) of which 172 met the coverage criteria for the DZ cohort. The correlation tests indicate overall consistency in direction of methylation of the top-ranked MZ sites in the DZ cohort. (TIF 4938 kb)
