Stable 1: Summary information for all genes with positively correlating genes based on expression data in the Allen Brain Atlas [2, 3]. Pairwise gene expression correlations taken from [4]. Differential methylation values in schizophrenic patients were taken from [1] and summed up for the "correlation neighbors" (i.e. genes having a Pearson correlation of min. 0.8) of each gene.

Steps to reproduce

1. Count the number of correlating genes (pairwise correlations taken from ) for each of the ~20k genes in table. This appears as column 11 in Stable 1, called geneOcc in the 1st row of the table. 2. Count how many of the correlating genes are hypomethylated. This appears in column 2, called pairs_hypometh. 3. Count how many of the correlating genes are hypermethylated. This appears in column 3, called pairs_hypermeth. 4. Count the number of hypomethylated probes of genes in column 2, shown in column 4, called pairs_hypoSum. 5. Count the number of hypomethylated probes of genes in column 3, shown in column 5, called pairs_hyperSum. 6. Show if the gene promoter or cis region (1p or 1c, respectively) appears in [1], in column 12, called 108prom/cis. Reference 1. Schizophrenia Working Group of the Psychiatric Genomics, C.
