Volcano plots of differentially methylated CpG sites between males and females. This volcano plot shows the result of genome-wide DNA methylation differences between 49 males and 44 females after adjusting for the estimated cell mixture proportions. Average beta difference (males-females) is shown on the x axis. Log10-converted p value is shown on the y-axis. CpG loci that showed a p value of less than 5 % after Bonferroni correction are colored red. Significant sex differences in DNA methylation were observed at 292 CpG sites (p < 1.44 × 10−7)
