Figure S2 Comparison of methylation rates between WGBS and LHC-BS. (a) The Pearson's correlation coefficient from the YH blood sample was 0.907, and the confidence interval was 0.902-0.912; (b) for the mDC cell line, the correlation coefficient was 0.925, and the confidence interval was 0.921-0.928. The y-axis shows the methylation rate of a cytosine as determined by the whole genome sequencing of bisulfite-treated DNA, and the x-axis shows the methylation level as determined by HLC-BS. This analysis was restricted to cytosines with at least nine reads in both samples.
