a Heatmap showing methylation state of orthologous genes (horizontal axis) to A. thaliana for each species (vertical axis). Species are organized according to phylogenetic relationship. b Percentage of genes in each species that are gbM (mCG only in coding sequences). The Brassicaceae are highlighted in gold. c The levels of mCG in upstream, across, and downstream of gbM genes for all species. Species in gold belong to the Brassicaceae and illustrate the decreased levels and loss of mCG. d gbM genes are more highly expressed, whereas mCG over the TSS (mCG-TSS) has reduced gene expression
