Distribution of significance for each individual DNA methylation site tested against age and serum cytokines levels. Histograms describe the distribution of p-values resulting from linear regression tests against DNA methylation M-values, adjusting for age group and sex. Age group was tested as either middle-aged or elderly groups, and serum cytokines were natural-log (Ln) transformed. Dotted lines represent the uniform distribution of p-values, in other words, the number of sites expected to be obtained at a given significance level by chance
