Data from: Species-wide patterns of DNA methylation variation in Quercus lobata and their association with climate gradients

Paul F. Gugger, Sorel Fitz-Gibbon, Matteo Pellegrini & Victoria L. Sork
DNA methylation in plants affects transposon silencing, transcriptional regulation and thus phenotypic variation. One unanswered question is whether DNA methylation could be involved in local adaptation of plant populations to their environments. If methylation alters phenotypes to improve plant response to the environment, then methylation sites or the genes that affect them could be a target of natural selection. Using reduced-representation bisulphite sequencing (RRBS) data, we assessed whether climate is associated with variation in DNA...
