Advanced technology has enabled identification of tissue-specific methylated CpG islands of different human tissues. As methylation of CpG islands is involved in various biological phenomena and function of the DNA methylation is linked to various human diseases such as cancer, analysis of the CpG islands has become important and useful in characterising and modelling biological phenomena and understanding mechanism of such diseases. However, analysis of the data associated with the CpG islands is a quite new and challenging subject in bioinformatics, systems biology and epigenetics.
