Figure 8

Joint effects of DNA methylation and histone modifications on gene expression. The four panels compare Random Forest expression models with only DNA methylation features (straight line with triangle markers), only histone modification features (orange bars), or both (blue bars). The four panels involve DNA methylation levels computed by different quantification measures. For DNA methylation and any type of histone modifications, its signal level is computed as the average over the upstream, transcribed and downstream regions of a gene. In each panel, the first 26 bar groups correspond to models involving one of the 26 types of histone modification, while the last bar group corresponds to the model involving all 26 types of histone modification.
