MethDB Data Description

DNA Methylation Database (MethDB) is an important public database dedicated to DNA methylation study. It collects many DNA Methylation data (Amoreira et al., 2003). The data from MethDB contains the human DNA methylation patterns, profiles and total methylation content data for different tissues and phenotypes coming from thousands of experiments. We integrated the MethDB data by sequence mapping, and a very small fraction of data without corresponding sequences was not included in MethyCancer.
