Single-base resolution DNA methylome maps of different organs in chickpea
In this study, we have elucidated the DNA methylation patterns in different organs of a cultivated chickpea genotype ICC 4958 (leaf, root, flower and young pod) and leaf of wild chickpea PI 489777 using bisulphite sequencing. Approximately 108 million read pairs were analyzed per sample. The extent of methylation along-with the context and genomic location of methylated Cs was identified. Further processing was performed to identify the differentially methylated regions among samples with leaves of ICC 4958 as the reference sample. The high resolution methylome maps of different organs and differentially methylated regions will serve as reference for understanding the epigenetic regulation in chickpea. Overall design: Whole-genome bisulphite sequencing was performed using HiSeq 2000 Illumina platform after isolating genomic DNA from different organs of ICC 4958 and PI 489777.
