I am working on WGBS Data and using MethyKIt package. When I used 8 samples in groups, it worked fine. Now on another set of data, where just 1 sample in each group is there. Here I am facing a problem

myDiff=calculateDiffMeth(meth,mc.cores=2) two groups detected: will calculate methylation difference as the difference of treatment (group: 1) - control (group: 0)

NOTE: performing 'fast.fisher' instead of 'F' for two groups testing. Error in mclapply(cntlist, function(x) fast.fisher(matrix(as.numeric(x), : 'mc.cores' > 1 is not supported on Windows

How can I correct this error? So that in later steps which is working on the object myDiff can be obtained.

'mc.cores' > 1 is not supported on Windows

then don't use Windows, run you R code in a Linux machine or use Docker

Thanks for your tip. I have done it as I put mc.cores=1, It worked.

after that step I am getting another error. Any clue how to solve this?

check the contig/chromosome names (for eg. chr1 vs 1 or contig 1 vs 1) in bed and cpg files used.

Sorry, not understood, where should I check this?

how did you create gene.obj ? Print few lines from myDiff25p object.

Hello I made gene.obj by using this command, where "refseq.hg18.bed.txt" file is there with MethyKit package

Remove "chr" from the chromosome names of the bed file and recreate gene.obj and the run the code again. Formatting of your post is confusing and Please format the data for better understanding. ADD REPLY 0 Entering edit mode ok, how will I do that? by what command? Regards Shrinka ADD REPLY 0 Entering edit mode On GNU-linux machine, $ sed 's/^chr//g' refseq.hg18.bed.txt > refseq.hg18.modified.bed.txt


Use refseq.hg18.modified.bed.txt, for building gene.obj.

Btw, if you are using refseq.hg18.bed.txt from methylkit package, you must know that it is truncated bed file. Are you using this bed.txt for your work or for reproducing methylkit tutorial?

Hello I am using this bed file for my work, to analyse my data.

Thanks Shrinka

Before I comment further, could you please post the source of the bed.txt file?

I can attach it off course. I mentioned It comes with Methylkit package itself. It is in exdata folder of that package only.

Thanks Shrinka

That bed.txt file has only these chromosomes: chr20, chr21, chr22, chr21_random, chr22_random, chr22_h2_hap1. Full bed file (with all main chromosomes) is supposed to be used in the analysis, instead of truncated bed file (meant for a tutorial only) unless you are looking for DMRs in chr 20,21 and 22 only. Btw, for alignment, did you use bismark? if so, which genome fasta you have used?

No I have not used bismark, as my input file was in matrix form, text file.

Thanks Shrinka

1. Remove the chr in bed.txt, rebuild the gene.obj with the new bed.txt. Please post here, if it works.
2. Please inquire how the text (matrix) file is generated. There might be a scientific issue, as I understand esp reference genome part.
3. The bed file, currently in use, is partial and outdated. Current version is hg38 (hg 38 > hg19 > hg18). Because of these reasons, work will not be scientifically up to date. However, this depends on the reference file used in building the matrix.

Thanks, I will work on that and will keep posting here.

What do you mean by text matrix?
