methylation: DNA Methylation, childhood trauma, and stress response

Description Usage Format References


A dataset containing variables on childhood trauma, stress response, and 1000 preprocessed epigenetic methylation values. This dataset was synthesised using the synthpop package to remove any identifying information.




A data frame with 85 rows and 1002 variables: a composite score on a childhood trauma questionnaire (x), a measure of increase in area under the curve of cortisol after stress task (y), and beta values of methylation at 1000 different locations in the genome.
