Sample GSM6053236 Query DataSets for GSM6053236
Status Public on Feb 15, 2023
Title WGBS, ago4-4/AGO4-D742A, biol rep 1
Sample type SRA
Source name Inflorescence
Organism Arabidopsis thaliana
Characteristics tissue: Inflorescence
genotype: ago4-4/AGO4-D742A
Growth protocol All Arabidopsis thaliana plants were grown at 21 C with 16 h light and 8 h dark in a growth room
Extracted molecule genomic DNA
Extraction protocol For each library, genomic DNA was extracted from the inflorescence tissues of a single plant using Nucleon Phytopure DNA Extraction Kit (Cytiva).
Whole-genome bisulfite sequencing libraries were prepared using Perkin Elmer’s Nextflex Bisulfite-Seq Kit per the manufacturer’s instruction. Approximately 500 ng DNA fragments were end-repaired, 3’ adenylated, and ligated with adapters. Unmethylated cytosines in the adapter-ligated DNA were chemically converted by EZ DNA Methylation-Gold Kit (Zymo Research Corp.) following the manufacturer’s instruction. The CT converted products were purified and subjected to 12 cycles of PCR amplification before single-ended Illumina sequencing.
Library strategy Bisulfite-Seq
Library source genomic
Library selection RANDOM
Instrument model Illumina NextSeq 500
Data processing To analyze the whole-genome bisulfite sequencing data, 3’ adapters were removed by Cutadapt v1.18 with the following options: -a AGATCGGAAGAGCACACGTCTGAACTCCAGTCAC -m 15 -q 20.
Trimmed reads were aligned to the Arabidopsis TAIR10 genome by bsmap2 with the following options: -w 100 -n 1 -p 3 -v 0.08. Methylation ratios at individual cytosine sites were calculated using
Arabidopsis genome was binned into 100 nt windows with CG, CHG, and CHH (where H represents any nucleotide except G) methylation calculated individually. To avoid regions with low sequencing coverage, only bins with at least 4 cytosines that were each covered by no less than 4 reads were included in this analysis.
Bins that have at least 10% less CHH methylation in the two independent replicates of ago4-4 compared to the two independent replicates of wild-type Ws ecotype plants were defined as differentially methylated bins.
Differentially methylated bins within 200 bp from each other were merged into differentially methylated regions (DMRs). Cytosine methylation levels at methylated regions were caculated.
Assembly: TAIR10
