Installation

install.packages( c("data.table", "mixtools", "devtools"))
source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite(c("GenomicRanges","IRanges"))
# install from github
library(devtools)
install_github("methylKit", username = "al2na",build_vignettes=FALSE)
install_github("edmr", username = "ShengLi",build_vignettes=FALSE)

Usage

Step 1. Load add-on packages and example data

library(edmr)
library(methylKit)
library(GenomicRanges)
library(mixtools)
library(data.table)
data(example.myDiff.2013Nov6)

Step 2. myDiff evalution and plotting

# fitting the bimodal normal distribution to CpGs distribution
myMixmdl=myDiff.to.mixmdl(chr22.myDiff, plot=T, main="example")

# plot cost function and the determined distance cutoff
plotCost(myMixmdl, main="cost function")

Step 3. Calculate DMRs

# calculate all DMRs candidate
mydmr=edmr(chr22.myDiff, mode=1, ACF=TRUE)

# further filtering the DMRs
mysigdmr=filter.dmr(mydmr)

## annotation
# get genebody annotation GRangesList object
genebody=genebody.anno(file="http://edmr.googlecode.com/files/hg19_refseq_all_types.bed")

# plot the eDMR genebody annotation
plot.dmr.distr(mysigdmr, genebody, main="eDMR genebody annotation", xlab="DMR count")

# get CpG islands and shores annotation
cpgi=cpgi.anno(file="http://edmr.googlecode.com/files/hg19_cpgisland_all.bed")

# plot the eDMR CpG islands and shores annotation
plot.dmr.distr(mysigdmr, cpgi, main="eDMR CpG islands and shores annotation", xlab="DMR count")

# prepare genes for pathway analysis with significant DMRs at its promoter regions 
dmr.genes=get.dmr.genes(myDMR=mysigdmr, subject=genebody$promoter, id.type="gene.symbol")
dmr.genes
