Parallel Epigenomic and Transcriptomic Responses to Viral Infection in Honey Bees (Apis mellifera)
Distribution of DNA methylation levels (measured by fractional methylation levels) of genes. The X-axis is drawn in a log-transformed scale with the actual methylation levels indicated. A total of 11,063 genes are grouped into 100 equal size parts. The genes clearly divide into two groups, one with sparse DNA methylation (peak at around 0.03) and the other with relatively high DNA methylation (peak at around 0.6).
