I am trying to use RnBeads to analyze DNA-methylation data, but I already have a matrix of beta-values. I cannot find a way to import data in that format and launch a differential analysis. Has anyone encountered the same problem?

What kind of analysis do you want to perform? Differential Methylation?

Yes, sorry I didn't specify that.

If you have normalised Beta values, and you trust the normalisation method (i.e. there's no way to get the IDAT files), then you can simply read that into R, convert to M values:

m <- log2(beta/(1 - beta))

Then perform a differential methylation analysis using Limma
