Registration Open for Bioc2024 July 24-26


A Collection of DNA Methylation Datasets for Human Tumour Samples and Matching Normal Samples

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

TumourMethData collects tumour methylation data from a variety of different tumour types (and also matching normal samples where available) and produced with different technologies (e.g. WGBS, RRBS and methylation arrays) and provides them as RangedSummarizedExperiments. This facilitates easy extraction of methylation data for regions of interest across different tumour types and studies.
