This chapter discusses analysis and interpretation of large-scale Illumina DNA methylation microarray data, used in the context of cancer studies. We outline commonly used normalization procedures and list issues to consider regarding data preprocessing. Focusing on software packages for R, we describe methods for finding features in the methylation data that are of importance for generating and testing hypotheses in cancer research, like differentially methylated positions or regions and global methylation trends.
