Supplementary Figures – Sex- and tissue- specific effects of binge levels of prenatal alcohol consumption on DNA methylation at birth
Supplementary Figure 1. Number of probes removed in each data filtering step
The chart illustrates the number of probes removed due to bad probe signal (detection p > 0.01), annotation of SNPs, non-specific target, and annotation on sex chromosomes.
Supplementary Figure 2. Principal component analysis (PCA) plots of buccal and placenta datasets before and after batch adjustment using the ComBat algorithm.
(A)-(D) PCA plots are coloured and labelled based on sample chip number in buccal and placenta datasets. (E) Table lists P values of univariate regression between top three PCs and sample chip number.
Supplementary Figure 3. Cell type proportions estimated in buccal and placenta samples.
(C)-(D) Correlation plots between each cell type proportion. Epi = Epithelial; Fib =Fibroblast; IC = Immune cells.
Supplementary Figure 4. Scree plots of the first ten PCs in both tissues and sexes.
For buccal samples, PCs 1-5 and PCs 1-6 capture most data variation in male and female dataset, respectively. For placenta samples, PCs 1-6 and PCs 1-8 capture most data variation in male and female dataset, respectively.
Supplementary Figure 5. MDS plots of placenta dataset in (a) male and (b) female offspring.
These MDS plots illustrate that dataset of non-European origin samples (blue circles) are not distinct from European origin samples (red circles) in placenta.
