Multidimensional scaling plots of adipocyte and adipose methylome samples.
(a) MDS plot of smoothed WGBS count ratios derived from the nine samples used in this study. (b) MDS plot of the matched 450K data from the same DNA samples. Probe count represents the number of probes whose detection P<0.05 for all nine samples in the plot. MDS, multidimensional scaling; SA, subcutaneous adipocyte; VA, visceral adipocyte; VAT, visceral adipose tissue; WGBS, whole-genome bisulfite sequencing.
