Data from: Genome-wide signature of local adaptation linked to variable CpG methylation in oak populations

Alexander Platt, Paul F. Gugger, Victoria L. Sork & Matteo Pellegrini
It has long been known that adaptive evolution can occur through genetic mutations in DNA sequence, but it is unclear whether adaptive evolution can occur through analogous epigenetic mechanisms, such as through DNA methylation. If epigenetic variation contributes directly to evolution, species under threat of disease, invasive competition, climate change or other stresses would have greater stores of variation from which to draw. We looked for evidence of natural selection acting on variably methylated DNA...
