Volcano plot of 627 significantly differentially methylated loci. For the 627 DML, the magnitude of differential methylation (Delta β) is shown in the x-axis and the variability of β value explained by the tissue type (CRC or normal) is shown on the y-axis. Color coding was done by the distance of the locus from the transcription start site (TSS), where blue indicates close & red indicates away from the TSS.
