Dimension reduction of methylation data. Dimension reduction is used to visually inspect the dataset for a strong signal in the methylation values that is related to sample clinical or chip batch effects. Values of the first two principal components (PC) in scatter plots are shown considering methylation levels of CpG sites (a) and methylation levels of regions such as genes (b), promoters (c), tiling (d), and CpG islands (e)
