MNase chromatin accessibility data for CS genome generated in Eduard Akhunov's lab (Kansas State University, USA) are now available to download at URGI in open access.

Our understanding of how the complexity of the wheat genome influences the distribution of chromatin states along the homoeologous chromosomes is limited. Using a differential nuclease sensitivity (DNS) assay, we investigated the chromatin states of the coding and and transposon element (TE) -rich repetitive regions of the allopolyploid wheat genome.
