Transcriptome and methylome interac... [Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2012] - PubMed - NCBI

DNA methylation is a heritable epigenetic mark that controls gene expression, is responsive to environmental stresses, and, in plants, may also play a role in heterosis. To determine the degree to which DNA methylation is inherited in rice, and how it both influences and is affected by transcription, we performed genome-wide measurements of these patterns through an integrative analysis of bisulfite-sequencing, RNA-sequencing, and siRNA-sequencing data in two inbred parents of the Nipponbare (NPB) and indica (93-11) varieties of rice and their hybrid offspring. We show that SNPs occur at a rate of about 1/253 bp between the two parents and that these are faithfully transmitted into the hybrids. We use the presence of these SNPs to reconstruct the two chromosomes in the hybrids according to their parental origin. We found that, unlike genetic inheritance, epigenetic heritability is quite variable. Cytosines were found to be differentially methylated (epimutated) at a rate of 7.48% (1/15 cytosines) between the NPB and 93-11 parental strains. We also observed that 0.79% of cytosines were epimutated between the parent and corresponding hybrid chromosome. We found that these epimutations are often clustered on the chromosomes, with clusters representing 20% of all epimutations between parental ecotypes, and 2-5% in F1 plants. Epimutation clusters are also strongly associated with regions where the production of siRNA differs between parents. Finally, we identified genes with both allele-specific expression patterns that were strongly inherited as well as those differentially expressed between hybrids and the corresponding parental chromosome. We conclude that much of the misinheritance of expression levels is likely caused by epimutations and trans effects.

The banana (Musa acuminata) genome and the evolution of monocotyledonous plants

Bananas (Musa spp.), including dessert and cooking types, are giant
perennial monocotyledonous herbs of the order Zingiberales, a
sister group to the well-studied Poales, which include cereals.
Bananas are vital for food security in many tropical and subtropical
countries and the most popular fruit in industrialized countries1.
The Musa domestication process started some 7,000 years ago in
Southeast Asia. It involved hybridizations between diverse species
and subspecies, fostered by human migrations2, and selection of
diploid and triploid seedless, parthenocarpic hybrids thereafter
widely dispersed by vegetative propagation. Half of the current
production relies on somaclones derived from a single triploid
genotype (Cavendish)1. Pests and diseases have gradually become
adapted, representing an imminent danger for global banana production3,4.
Here we describe the draft sequence of the 523-megabase
genome of aMusa acuminata doubled-haploid genotype, providing
a crucial stepping-stone for genetic improvement of banana. We
detected three rounds of whole-genome duplications in the Musa
lineage, independently of those previously described in the Poales
lineage and the one we detected in the Arecales lineage. This first
monocotyledon high-continuity whole-genome sequence reported
outside Poales represents an essential bridge for comparative
genome analysis in plants. As such, it clarifies commelinidmonocotyledon
phylogenetic relationships, reveals Poaceaespecific
features and has led to the discovery of conserved noncoding
sequences predating monocotyledon–eudicotyledon
divergence.

Insights into salt tolerance from the genome of Thellungiella salsuginea

Thellungiella salsuginea, a close relative of Arabidopsis, represents an extremophile model for abiotic stress tolerance studies. We present the draft sequence of the T. salsuginea genome, assembled based on ∼134-fold coverage to seven chromosomes with a coding capacity of at least 28,457 genes. This genome provides resources and evidence about the nature of defense mechanisms constituting the genetic basis underlying plant abiotic stress tolerance. Comparative genomics and experimental analyses identified genes related to cation transport, abscisic acid signaling, and wax production prominent in T. salsuginea as possible contributors to its success in stressful environments.
