Chalkbrood, a widespread fungal disease of bee larvae, is caused by the fungus Ascosphaera apis. In this article, mecylia and spores of A. apis were respectively collected followed by DNA isolation, bisulfite conversion, cDNA library construction and next-generation sequencing. Using whole genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS), 69,844,360 and 60,570,990 raw reads were yielded from Aam and Aas, and after quality control, 9,982,386,951 and 8,825,601,434 clean reads were obtained, respectively. In addition, 67,685,866 and 58,886,072 clean reads were mapped to the reference genome of A. apis, including 37,643,592 and 31,568,442 unique mapped clean reads, and 49,686 and 13,348 multiple mapped clean reads. Furthermore, after bisulfite treatment, the conversion ratio of clean reads from Aam and Aas were 99.38% and 99.51%, respectively. The WGBS data ducumented here contributes to genome-wide identification of 5mC methylation sites in A. apis and comparison of methylomes between mycelium and spore. Value of the dataO_LIThis dataset can be used for genome-wide identification of 5mC methylation sites in A. apis. C_LIO_LIThe accessible data could be used to systematically compare methylomes between mycelium and spore of A. apis. C_LIO_LICur...Continue Reading
