Hierarchical cluster analyses of DNA methylation data. A Wilcoxon paired test statistics (FDR < 1 × 10–6, delta. beta > 0.25) applied to DNA methylation data of paired biopsies identified 1303 loci aberrantly methylated in tumor samples (red boxes on top of the heatmap) as compared to the corresponding controls (light green boxes). 34 of the remaining 36 specimens with an uncertain diagnosis (dark green boxes: supposed benign; orange boxes: supposed tumor containing) which were excluded from the statistical test clustered together with their counterparts with certain diagnosis. Two samples with doubtful diagnosis clustered “between” benign and malignant specimens. heatmap: blue: low, yellow: high DNA methylation. For presentation, mean methylation of each locus was normalized to zero (mean = 0)
