Abstract The promise of epigenome-wide association studies and cancer-specific somatic DNA methylation changes in improving our understanding of cancer, coupled with the decreasing cost and increasing coverage of DNA methylation microarrays, has brought about a surge in the use of these technologies. Here, we aim to provide both a review of issues encountered in the processing and analysis of array-based DNA methylation data and a summary of the advantages of recent approaches proposed for handling those issues, focusing on approaches publicly available in open-source environments such as R and Bioconductor. We hope that the processing tools and analysis flowchart described herein will facilitate researchers to effectively use these powerful DNA methylation array-based platforms, thereby advancing our understanding of human health and disease.
