  1. aFor uncharacterized gene targets, CpG island location was assigned instead of gene location. bAverage of the log2 ratios assigned to positive peaks across the six DCIS. Targets with methylated peaks within the CpG island in at least three out of six DCIS samples were considered significant. *Unknown CpG islands verified by combined bisulfite restriction analysis assays or bisulfite sequencing.
