DNA methylation signatures of duplicate gene evolution in angiosperms

Applying a consistent comparative epigenomics approach across forty-three diverse angiosperm species and a population of 928 Arabidopsis thaliana accessions.

In this Presentation Sunil investigates some of his postdoc work, in which he observed several overarching trends, demonstrating that genic DNA methylation is differentially associated with the type of gene duplication, age of gene duplication, sequence evolution, and gene expression. WGDs are typically unmethylated or marked by mCG.
