AbstractIn plants, methylation at cytosines often leads to changes in gene expression and inactivation of transposable elements. Changes in cytosine methylation (epimutations) might produce epialleles with distinct phenotypes. We present a genome-wide cytosine methylation profiling method based on bisulfite conversion and next-generation sequencing, which is applicable for plant species with available reference genomes. This so-called plant-RRBS profiling method reproducibly covers specific genomic regions and enriches for coverage of cytosine positions that are suitable for comparative analyses in multi-sample studies in basic biology and breeding studies. The plant-RRBS workflow consists of genomic DNA digestion with coverage-efficient restriction endonuclease combinations followed by a performant library generation and next-generation sequencing and a straightforward, publically available methylation data processing pipeline. Plant-RRBS has a twofold higher ratio of cytosine coverage per covered genome as compared to whole-genome bisulfite sequencing, covering tens of millions of cytosine positions, and allows detection of differential cytosine methylation, which was evaluated using rice epilines.
