Ascosphaera apis is widespread fungal pathogen of honeybee larvae, causing chalkbrood, a chronic disease that weakens bee health and colony productivity. In this article, mecylia and spores of A. apis were respectively purified followed by RNA isolation, cDNA library construction, MeRIP-seq and RNA-seq. A total of 62,551,172, 41,773,158, 49,535,092 and 61,569,610 raw reads were produced from Aam_IP, Aas_IP, Aam_input and Aas_input groups, respectively. After quality control, 58,484,368,

Furthermore, 47,706,205, 31,356,690, 35,259,810 and 44,319,061 clean reads were mapped to the reference genome of A. apis, including 39,337,036, 26,731,957, 31,987,396 and 40,017,855 unique mapped reads, and 8,369,169, 4,624,733, 3,272,414 and 4,301,206 multiple mapped reads. Among them, 96.31%, 96.51% , 96.82% and 97.11% of clean reads were mapped to exons; 2.09%, 2.31%,1.83% and 1.81% to introns; 1.60%, 1.18%, 1.35% and 1.08% to intergenic regions.
