R package REMP (Repetitive Element Methylation Prediction) is now available on Bioconductor.
REMP provides machine learing-based tools to predict DNA methylation of locus-specific repetitive elements (RE) by learning surrounding genetic and epigenetic information. These tools provide genomewide and single-base resolution of DNA methylation prediction on RE that are difficult to measure using array-based or sequencing-based platforms, which enables epigenome-wide association study (EWAS) and differentially methylated region (DMR) analysis on RE.
Congratulations to Jacob Kresovich for passing his Ph.D. Dissertation Defense!
