Two separate plots of 5-methylcytosine and 5-hydroxymethylcytosine distribution on chromosome 3 plotted against incidence of CpG to T mutations. While the 5mC and CpG>T mutation distributions are similar, the 5hmC and CpG>T distributions are not, highlighting that different cytosine modifications differentially influence C to T mutation rate.
