Table 2 Linear modeling for sex-specific autosomal DNAme shows consistent higher male methylation

From: A cross-cohort analysis of autosomal DNA methylation sex differences in the term placenta

  Δβ > 0 Δβ > 0.05 Δβ > 0.10 Δβ > 0.20
FDR < 0.05 24,715 (0.74) 2,942 (0.87) 166 (0.92) 4 (1.00)
FDR < 0.01 14,108 (0.80) 2,682 (0.88) 166 (0.92) 4 (1.00)
  1. Number of significantly differentially methylated autosomal positions at various statistical and biological thresholds are shown. FDR indicates the Benjamini-Hochberg false discovery rate, and Δβ refers to β value sex difference (male-female). Numbers in brackets indicate the proportion of sites at each threshold more highly methylated in male placentae
