Abstract: Abstract: DNA methylation plays a vital role in the regulation of gene expression in response to environmental stress. However, little is known about the effect of DNA methylation on the cassava polyploidy. In the present study, methylation-sensitive amplified polymorphisms (MSAP) were used to investigate DNA methylation profiles of cassava polyploidy following cold treatment to identify candidate genes involved in response to cold stress. The result showed that the genome-wide DNA methylation polymorphisms a…
