There is a very high volume of traffic coming from your site (IP address as of Sun Oct 17 22:42:51 2021 (California time). So that other users get a fair share of our bandwidth, we are putting in a delay of 12.3 seconds before we service your request. This delay will slowly decrease over a half hour as activity returns to normal. This high volume of traffic is likely due to program-driven rather than interactive access, or the submission of queries on a large number of sequences. If you are making large batch queries, please write to our public mailing list and inquire about more efficient ways to access our data.

Go to DNA Methylation track controls

Source data version: June 2015
Data last updated at UCSC: 2015-08-07 15:38:02


This track shows low-coverage DNA methylation (MethylC-seq) data in cow cells and tissues.

Display Conventions and Configuration

Methylation data are available in two formats:

Methyl (BAM format)

In dense mode, each bar represents a single CpG site.

  • Red = 80-100% methylation
  • Green = 60-80% methylation
  • Blue = 1-60% methylation
  • Black = 0% methylation

In pack mode, the color-coding is the same but each CpG site is labeled by the percent methylation at that site.

Note that, due to low coverage, a CpG site may be colored red or black simply because there was only one read that covered that site. Therefore this data is most useful when viewed over larger genomic distances.

Methyl2 (bigWig format)

In dense mode, each bar represents a single CpG site, color-coded as a gradient from light gray (low methylation) to black (high methylation).

In full mode, methylation is graphed as a black curve with percent methylation on the y axis. Properties of this track can be modified by pressing the wrench symbol above.


MII oocytes were produced by in vitro maturation of GV oocytes collected from ovaries according to standard protocols. Oocyte maturation was confirmed by the presence of a polar body. Then, zona pellucida and first polar body were removed by incubation in 0.5% pronase solution for 2 minutes and vigorous pipetting. Zona-free oocytes were snap frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored at -80°C until DNA extraction.

For all samples, MethylC-seq read were aligned to the genome using BS Seeker, allowing two mismatches (not including those at CpG sites). Only one read per genomic position was kept to prevent clonal PCR amplification biases. CpG site methylation data were combined from both DNA strands.
