    Sheep (Ovis aries) is one of the first domesticated mammals for meat, dairy and wool production. However, limited sheep DNA methylation analysis at specific sequences was reported. Here, we described the comprehensive sheep Longissimus dorsi (LD) muscle DNA methylome at single base resolution using BS-seq. Below is the detailed sample information.
