From: Targeted bisulfite sequencing identified a panel of DNA methylation-based biomarkers for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC)

The mean methylation status of each genomic region and bisulfite conversion efficiency between ESCC tumors and normal tissues as well as the overall ROC (Receiver Operating characteristics) curve. a represents the bisulfite conversion efficiency between ESCC and adjacent normal tissues. Bisulfite conversion efficiency was calculated by using the number of transformed C to T divided by the number of C in each sample. bf represent the mean methylation status of the genomic regions covering STK3, cg19396867, cg20655070, ZNF418, and ZNF542, respectively. Each point represents mean methylation percentage in a genomic region of a sample. The boxplot showed overall methylation percentage of different groups in each genomic region. g represents the overall ROC curve, which was calculated through a logistic regression model, incorporating the mean methylation percentage of the five genomic regions as the variables and without the adjustment for gender, age, and smoking status and alcohol status
