The epigenomes of tomato fruit development and ripening

Single-base resolution methylomes of wild-type tomato fruits at four different developmental stages, immature (17 DPA), mature green (39 DPA), breaker (42 DPA), and red ripe (52 DPA), fruits (42 DPA) of tomato ripening mutants, rin and Cnr, and tomato leaves were published in Nature Biotechnology. The study revealed that dynamic tomato epigenomes could play an important role in fruit ripening
