DNA methylation plays important roles in responses to environmental stimuli. However, in perennial plants, the roles of DNA methylation in stress-specific adaptions to different abiotic stresses remain unclear. Here, we present a systematic, comparative analysis of the methylome and gene expression in poplar under cold, osmotic, heat, and salt stress conditions from 3h to 24h. Comparison of the stress responses revealed different patterns of cytosine methylation in response to the four abiotic… CONTINUE READING
