Table 2 Differentially methylated regions (DMR) between urban and rural populations based on different cell types

From: Epigenetic variation between urban and rural populations of Darwin’s finches

Species/Cell Type Number of Windows* Sum of Multiple (≥2) Window DMR**
1 2 3 4 5
G. fortis Erythrocytes 2742 125 4 0 0 129
G. fortis Sperm 1160 97 9 3 1 110
G. fuliginosa Erythrocytes 4339 314 9 1 0 324
G. fuliginosa Sperm 1765 133 6 0 0 139
  1. Only DMR that were significant at P < 0.001 are included
  2. *DMR detected in one window alone were considered “single-window” variants (Fig. 2)
  3. **DMR detected in two or more adjacent windows were considered “multiple-window” variants and used in subsequent analyses (Figs. 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6)
