From: LRpath analysis reveals common pathways dysregulated via DNA methylation across cancer types

Figure 4

Difference in methylation in significant genes between normal and tumor samples involved in immune response (GO term). Waterfall plots of the average methylation change of those genes involved in immune response (average methylation % among tumor samples - average methylation % among normal control samples) is shown below. All except prostate cancer show a significant number of genes undergoing hypomethylation, a possible mechanism for gene activation.
