Arsala, D., Wu, X., Yi, S. V., Lynch, J. A. 2021. Gene body methylation facilitated by Dnmt1 is required for the maternal-zygotic transition in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis [Biorxiv].

We show that dnmt1 is essential for embryonic development in the wasp and that reduction of gene body methylation leads to reduction of gene expression levels.
