Differential methylation anlsysis for bisulfite sequencing data

Bioconductor version: 3.16

MethCP is a differentially methylated region (DMR) detecting method for whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) data, which is applicable for a wide range of experimental designs beyond the two-group comparisons, such as time-course data. MethCP identifies DMRs based on change point detection, which naturally segments the genome and provides region-level differential analysis.
