E-GEOD-39959 - DNA methylomes of the fire ant Solenopsis invicta
Released on 27 March 2013, last updated on 4 April 2013
We used whole bodies of four different adult fire ant morphs (alate queens, workers, haploid males, and diploid males) from a single polygyne colony to generate single-base resolution DNA methylation maps. DNA was extracted from whole bodies of individual males, individual queens, and pooled workers. Bisulfite conversion and sequencing was performed by Beijing Genomics Institute (Shenzhen, China). Unmethylated enterobacteria phage lambda DNA (GenBank accession: J02459.1) was added to each genomic DNA sample as a control for bisulfite conversion efficiency.
