Plant Epigenetics

   Plants are masters of epigenetic regulation. All of the major epigenetic mechanisms known to occur in eukaryotes are used by plants, with the responsible pathways elaborated to a degree that is unsurpassed in other taxa. The study of epigenetics in plants has a long and rich history, from initial descriptions of non-Mendelian gene behaviors to seminal discoveries of chromatin-modifying proteins and RNAs that mediate gene silencing in most eukaryotes, including humans.

   Unlike animals, plants stably inherit their DNA methylomes from one generation to the next. The resulting gene silencing likely hides an abundance of phenotypic variation.
