Jobs marked as "running". A monitor URL is assigned to each

Jobs marked as "running". A monitor URL is assigned to each job, which allows users to check the status of their jobs. The user has an option to provide an e-mail address for notification when the job is running and a link to results. This option is particularly useful if multiple large databases are selected (e.g. GO and MeSH).Cross-experiment visualization via clustering in LRpathLRpath results from multiple experiments may be integrated in order to interactively view and explore the enrichment profiles across experiments. It provides a user-friendly method for (+)-Dihydrexidine filtering, merging, and clustering LRpath results using several options. The input for this part of the application is the set of URLs from previous LRpath analyses to be clustered. The user has the ability to choose the values to be used to cluster, the type of distance matrix method, the type of linkage method for hierarchical clustering, and which biological concepts to include. The output is a set of files to input directly into PubMed ID: the widely-used and freelyavailable TreeView software [47,48]. Here, users can view the hierarchical clustering with each row corresponding to a concept, and each column corresponding to an experiment.Reanalysis of publicly available CpG methylation data in cancersFor this study, we selected ten tumor versus normal CpG methylation studies profiled on the Illumina HumanMethylation27 BeadChip, four studies from Gene Expression Obmibus (GEO) and six studies from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database based on available sample size (N > 40) and PubMed ID: the availability of normal adjacent methylation profiling status (at least three normal samples). To represent a wide spectrum of cancers, all studies, with the exception of lung cancer, which is classified into adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, were from unique sites: breast, colon [49], brain [50], myeloma [51], kidney, ovarian [52], prostate [53], and stomach. From 27,543 CpG sites, those sites withKim et al. BMC Genomics 2012, 13:526 14 ofmissing beta score in any one study were filtered out, and 23,050 sites remained for further downstream analysis. Our analyses included 6 paired and 4 non-paired studies, and using LIMMA package in R software, the differential methylation between tumor and adjacent normal samples was examined using beta scores according to experimental design (paired or non-paired). Resulting p-values were adjusted for multiple-comparison using the false discovery rate (FDR) method.Additional filesAdditional file 1: Table S1.
