Hi, i'm new to bioinformatics and I need to calculate distance from a CpG site to a CpG island. My problem is that CpG island is a region(an interval) but distance is meaningful for two points! I don't know what distance to a CpG island mean;distance to start,end or middle point of a CpG island? I appreciate you telling me your ideas!

May I ask why do you want to compute this distance? The purpose is important for you to choose the method

It was written in an article as a feature for predicting 5-methylcytosine on CpG sites but no other details was mentioned!

So they built a model to predict the 5mC? Can you provide the link to the article?
