  1. Bold numbers are the total meQTLs identified in each cohort and serve as the denominator for calculation of percentages.
  2. Upper triangle: number (percent) of meQTLs identified in top dataset (column header) that were also identified in left-hand dataset (row header).
  3. Lower triangle: number (percent) of meQTLs identified in left-hand dataset (row header) that were also identified in top dataset (column header).
  4. Abbreviations: CB B cord blood B, TCTX temporal cortex, FCTX frontal cortex, PONS pons, CRBLM cerebellum, CB A cord blood A, and PB peripheral blood.
