“Focus on a Feature: Visualization of whole genome DNA methylation data in IGB.”

This tutorial has ended. You can find the recording here:


To follow along, you can find the data I used in Galaxy here.

You can find previous Focus on a Feature tutorials here.


  1. Intro to generating whole genome bisulfite sequencing (BS-seq) data.
  2. Differential visual analysis of BS-seq data in IGB.
  3. Comparative visualization with RNA-Seq data.

Integrated Genome Browser (IGB)

IGB provides an advanced, highly customizable environment for exploring and analyzing large-scale genomic data sets. Using IGB you can visually analyze RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and many other genomic projects. The best part is that IGB can be used to produce publication quality images from genome scale data sets, and is provided FREE.

I've been following a repeating the tutorial. Very nice indeed..

I have a question for you. How do you manage the data ? Is it required any type of normalization ?

Hi Dr. Franco,

The methods that have been recommended to me for analyzing methylation data can be found in two papers: "Human body epigenome maps reveal noncanonical DNA methylation variation" and "Charting a dynamic DNA methylation landscape of the human genome". The supplementary information goes into detail on calling the methylation rates using a binomial test, as well as determining differentially methylated regions between samples.

I wrote a letter of support last year, and I have just wrote another one, because this program is fantastic.

Please, visit the web page and include a supporting letter
