Meristem micropropagation of cassava (Manihot esculenta) evokes genome-wide changes in DNA methylation

Abstract

There is great interest in the phenotypic, genetic and epigenetic changes associated with plant in vitro culture known as somaclonal variation. In vitro propagation systems that are based on the use of microcuttings or meristem cultures are considered analogous to clonal cuttings and so widely viewed to be largely free from such somaclonal effects. In this… (More)
