  1. In each line (according to the corresponding marker) the identities of couples of frozen/FFPE DNAs (designated as couple 1 through couple 40) displaying both successful controls of bisulfite conversion and no differences in methylation levels are listed. Numbers in bold indicates couples displaying both a successful control of bisulfite conversion and no differences in methylation levels for the three markers.
