Rice Epigenomic & Genomic Annotation

  Epigenetic marks played an essential role in various pathways, including transcription regulation, DNA replication and repair, development and differentiation as well as response to environmental factors. Thanks to single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing, recent discovery of DNA N6-methyladenosine (6mA) methylation provided new insights into altering the activities and functions of developmental signals and stress responses.

    In rice (Oryza sativa), genome-wide 6mA distribution at single-nucleotide resolution has been reported in two main and parental cultivars (Nipponbare, japonica group; 93-11, indica group), which were regarded as reference genomes of japonica and indica groups. Here, we have developed a species-specific epigenomic database, eRice (an Epigenomic & Genomic Annotation Database for Rice), to facilitate efficient epigenomic studies for both japonica and indica groups.
